"What are you doing?"
"I'm tying my shoe. What does it look like I'm doing?"
"It looks like you just untied your shoe."
"Well. . . yeah."
"Oh. Well, see the other shoe was untied. And after I tied that shoe, this shoe felt. . . funny."
"Yeah. . . So I needed to untie and retie this shoe so that I wouldn't be . . . unbalanced."
"Oh, I don't think you've solved the problem of being unbalanced."
