Speak, Minotaur!

Mom Figurine Tree
I was often looking for nice things to do for my Mom. One day, I noticed that she often had a hard time opening two-liter soda bottles. I got an idea, and snuck out into the garage, where we kept a supply of soda. Methodically, I went through each and every soda bottle and unscrewed and unscrewed and re-tightened the caps (but not too tight!). It was a big supply, and there must have been at least twenty bottles out there.

I snuck back inside and waited. After a couple of days, Mom hadn't said anything, so I asked her if she'd noticed anything about the soda bottles -- that, say, they were a little easier to open? "Why? What did you do?" asked Mom. I explained my good deed to her. She took it rather well, seeing as the intention was good, but we did drink a lot of soda very quickly over the next few days.
