*both parties pause momentarily*

Karen and I arrived home to find our neighbor, Eric, shoveling snow.

Us- "Hey-- what're you doing?"
Eric- "Shoveling."
Us- "Why?"
Eric- "To make an igloo."

*both parties pause momentarily*

Us- "So why don't you shovel the snow off your driveway instead of your yard?"

*both parties pause momentarily*

Eric- "Oh."

*both parties pause momentarily*

Eric- "Shit."

Note: When dealing with teenage boys, remember that height and the ability to see the obvious do not always go hand in hand.
