**Murphy's Household Laws**

A child's eagerness to assist in any project varies in inverse
proportion to his ability to actually do the work involved
Leftovers always expand to fill all available containers plus one
A newly washed window gathers dirt at twice the speed of an unwashed
one
The availability of a ball-point pen is inversely proportional to how
badly it is needed
The same clutter that will fill a one-car garage will fill a two-car
garage
Three children plus two cookies equals a fight
The potential for disaster is in direct proportion to the number of TV
remote-controls divided by the number of viewers
The number of doors left open varies inversely with the outside
temperature
The capacity of any water-heater is equal to one and a half sibling
showers
What goes up must come down, except bubble gum and slightly used
cereal
