It's five in the morning on a Monday.
You awaken to what feels like an angry blacksmith is using your bladder for a bellows.
You waste no time in getting out of bed.
Bleary, you shamble off to the bathroom.
The sound of a heavy Seattle downpour is coming in through a tiny, high-set window.
Just then, the toes of your right foot come to rest in a puddle of cold water.
NOW ANSWER QUICKLY: What is the first thought to enter your mind upon feeling the wetness?
Perhaps one of these?
A) The roof is leaking!!! Aaaaaiieeeee!!!
B) Well, at least it's not a warm puddle…
C) That reminds me, we need paper towels.
D) Hmm, I don't live in Seattle, so I must be dreaming.
E) Hmm, I don't have a right foot, so I must be dreaming.
G) What an interesting coincidence there happened to be a heavy rain just when I discovered the watery evidence of a failed toilet shutoff valve.
For what it's worth, the first choice above was my first reaction and the last one on the list was the reality.

Or something to that effect.
