Ever try to cook in the kitchen around a Buick?

It’s a regular sort of kitchen, with counters, appliances, a telephone table and enough floor space for eight or 10 people to stand around comfortably talking, as they sometimes do while waiting for me to pour out their ration of cheer. But let me go in there planning to cook something and immediately my wife comes in after me and inflates.

In the dead of night, a flush rang out

Her urgent whisper came to me through the fog of sleep. I wasn’t sure I’d heard right. “Someone did what?” I mumbled. “Someone just flushed the downstairs toilet.” That was arresting news to receive at half past 3 o’clock in the morning — especially since we’re the only two people who live here. At least we think we are.
