Pipe Dreams

An elderly lady who lives above us kept complaining that we banged our baby�s crib into the walls at night. I tried to tell her it might be pipes. She didn�t believe me. A little bit later one late night, I heard a commotion from their bathroom. It seemed a pipe or something had burst. The noise stopped after that. I still wonder if she realized I was right.
