"Where's my box of eyebrows? Where's my box of eyebrows?! I need to look surprised, and all I've got is concerned..."

I could not possibly be more delighted by the notion of keeping a box of eyebrows around for different expressions.
Now, I've mentioned in the past that Adam also has a bizarre way of waking up. He often snaps directly from a deep sleep to fully awake and aware, generally with some sort of completely sensible and relevant declaration.
On the morning in question, I was lying next to him, awake, but resting with my eyes closed, when he suddenly awoke with a declaration of his need to urinate. I'll admit that, in the following conversation, I may have exaggerated in accusing him of "shouting." In my defense, though, you'll have to believe that it was a lot louder than the recorder, which was buried under the covers, picked up.

|ADAM:||(suddenly snaps awake) Must pee. (gets up and pads to the bathroom)|
|KAREN:||How did you know I was awake, and you weren't necessarily waking me up by suddenly shouting "must pee?"|
|ADAM:||The "must pee" was for my benefit, to motivate me into getting out of bed.|
|KAREN:||I know, but how did you know I wasn't dead asleep?|
|ADAM:||I saw your light come on.|
|KAREN:||Yeah, just this second, AFTER you shouted and were already in the bathroom.|
|ADAM:||Oh. I don't know.... Were you awake?|
|ADAM:||Well that's alright then.|
|ADAM:||Did I wake you?|
|ADAM:||So, what's your problem?|
