The Scene: Early a.m. Songbird in upstairs hallway, not quite awake.
Pure Luck: (bursts up stairs)
Pure Luck: Water is pouring through the kitchen ceiling!!!!
Pure Luck: It's coming through the track lights!!!!
Songbird: (awake now) Did you turn off the lights?
Pure Luck: (bursts down the stairs)
Songbird: (follows him and finds water pouring through ceiling as if a sprinkler system had been set off, a mystery since NO WATER IS RUNNING UPSTAIRS!!!!!!!!!!!)
Pure Luck: (begins sopping up water in now darkened kitchen)
Songbird: (helplessly picks up and puts down dishcloth, then goes back upstairs)
Pure Luck: (continues sopping)
Songbird: (opens seeming closet door that actually encloses shower plumbing and finds leak): Honey, I found the leak.
Pure Luck: (arrives and hands Songbird a towel)
Songbird: I don't understand this. All I did was rinse something out in the bathtub.
Pure Luck: Nothing happened when I took a shower.
Songbird: I'll call the plumber. (goes back to kitchen to look up number, while waiting for plumber to answer, looks at ceiling in kitchen, thinks) This is what happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object. Water, meet ceiling. Which is what my God and Moses sermon is about.
God: Heh. I hope you like this illustration.
Songbird: Thanks. Thanks a lot.
