    Or I am!

    Mary sneezes a lot. Not alergies or anything, like she says, "it's just my nose."

    And for some reason, she runs water a lot. Feeding the dog, filling her water dish, making lunch, whatever. I can never tell when or why, it just happens randomly.

    These events, I find, are generally timed to coincide with any time I need to get her attention from across the house. To whit:

    Saturday, sitting at my computer. The washer & dryer are in the basement directly under me. I hear the sound of an unbalanced load about to make the machine take a walk across the cellar. Mary is in the kitchen across the house, near the cellar stairs, where she could get to it quicker than me. if I yell moderately loud, she should have no trouble at all hearing me.

    Me: "Mare, I---"
    Mary: sneezes four times in a row, loudly.
    Me: "The wash---"
    Mary: Blows nose loudly.
    Me: "Mar --"
    Mary: Blows a second time to clean it out real good (she has such a dainty nose, how much can be in there!?).
    Washing machine: "rumble clunk"
    Me: "Hello--"
    Mary: turns the kitchen faucet on and washes her hands. Thoroughly. Twice.
    Me: 'MAAARYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!"
    Mary (Annoyed at my tone of voice): "WHAT!? WHAT!? What do you want?!"
    Washing machine: "Bang! Clunk!"
    Me: "Would you--"
    Mary: "Wait, wait, the washing machine is unbalanced" (runs down stairs).
    :bang:
    Mary: (fixes washer, runs back upstairs): "Now what were you yelling about that I have to run all the way back here for?"
    :bang: :bang: :bang: :bang:

    I swear, some day I'll be trying to yell "Get out! The house is on fire" or "Run! There's a bear about to eat your head!" or "Shoot! Shoot him now or we're all dead!" and she'll miss it all 'cause she's blowing her nose.

    :rofl:

    You could've just gone down and fixed the washer load yourself. 'course complaining is more fun.

    ^Agreed! :lol:

    Like I said, she was right by the cellar door and I was on the other side of the house. It was supposed to be a quick emergency notification followed by a quick fix. But her nose had other plans. Her nose ALWAYS has other plans!
