...or there might be a tornado. Or a plague!
Bethany: I don’t suppose you would be interested in vacuuming the second floor? It really needs to be done before it gets hot again.
Me: …because the heat will really bake the dirt in?
Bethany: Nooo, I just won’t be able to stand the heat up there for more than five minutes, is all. Vacuuming will be right off the list.
Me: I love how you relate the possibility of cleaning to geological movement and large-scale weather patterns.
Me: "Once monsoon season hits, cleaning the basement will be totally out of the question."
Bethany: Look, a butterfly might be flapping its wings in Japan right now!
