I have no idea where I first heard this, but once upon a time I heard a lovely little theory that the bathroom sinks that are motion activated are actually soul tests. If you have a soul, they see you and turn on. If you have no soul, you have no water. It seems fair.
The other night at the college, I went to the bathroom, and I was pleased to find out I still had my soul – the water turned on when I put my hands under it. But then when I went to get the soap, I pressed the little lever and the cover fell on me. So what does that say? What kind of test did I just pass or fail?
