John: What’s that noise?
Me: You mean the thing that sounds like a snare drum being followed by a civil war regiment? I think it’s the dryer.
John (walking toward sound): Ahhhh! What adventures does entropy have in store for us today?
(Answer: It was the dryer following hot on the heels of the dishwasher, two flat tires and right before the vacuum cleaner blew a belt. Ain’t entropy great?)
