Consider the following

If you are baking something yummy to take to life group, and if you melt one and-a-half sticks of margarine in a mixing bowl, and if when you carry the bowl from the microwave to the counter you drop the bowl such that every single DROP of melted margarine is dumped onto the kitchen floor, then the mess that you will have to clean up can only be described as incredibly awful.

If padded church chairs are outside in a misting fine rain for even a few minutes, then they will get quite damp.

If your one hundred year-old house hasn’t been painted in sixteen years and you decide to have it painted, then it will take a crew of from three to six men four solid days to power wash, scrape, and sand it. (It will take them at least two more days to repair, caulk, prime, and otherwise prep the surfaces.)  During those four days, from 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM, there will never be a block of time longer than four minutes during which it will not sound like multiple people are banging on your door and/or running an air compressor in your ear.  Additionally, at any time, looking out any window of your house, you will see ladders, men’s legs, and/or men’s faces. These three, or a combination thereof, will be everywhere at all times, and some of the men’s faces will always be smoking.

Furthermore, if you strain your marriage far enough to come to an agreement on the color of paint for your house, then the specific color you pick will require a base that is not available anywhere in the entire state and cannot be obtained for three weeks.
