Sarah: (laughing) "Carolyn thinks you shouldn't hit fans and refrigerators and stuff... in case they really do come to life, and kill us."
Me: (raising an eyebrow) "Well, I'd believe it of computers... they're vindictive little bastards. But fans and refrigerators?"
Carolyn: (defensive)"I don't know if it will really happen... but if it does, I don't want them to be mad at me!"
(At this point, Sarah and I collapsed into fits of helpless giggles)
