bulletLeave your underwear on the living room floor because that's where the dog will drag it anyway. (Especially when you have company.)
bulletJump out of your chair shortly before the end of your favorite TV program and run to the door shouting, "No no! Do that OUTSIDE!" Miss the end of the program.
bulletPut chocolate pudding on the carpet in the morning, and don't try to clean it up until you return from work that evening.
