When getting up to pee in the middle of the night at the parents’ house and facing two choices:
1. stepping in middle of cat’s litter box and dumping it over, then stepping in cat’s food bowl and dumping IT over, then turning on the light to see what happened as sleeping wife becomes wide-awake wife;
2. Uneventfully walking to bathroom;
You might consider just going with that second one. Even if the first one DID sort of feel like indoor trail running.
I thank you, and your wife thanks you.
