My mind was totally on track with Lisa. Only mine went a little more like:

A modern-day ark with 5 br, 3 bath, eat-in kitchen, and a basement big enough for two of every kind!

"Why do these things always happen right after I fill up the car with gas?"

or

"Well, look at the bright side...you don't have to fix the sprinkler system now."
