Your sitting outside having an important conversation and you see a camera flash bright flash, slowly count to five, see it repeat, count to five again for three more repeats, it disapears into the earths shadow, and then spend the next hour trying to figure out which satellite it was. Not even noticing you are now going to be spending the night on the couch. All you are thinking is,

I love the flashers and flares during equinox season!!!
I just saw some idiot at the gym put a water bottle in the pringles holder on the treadmill.

Friend has a rapid heartbeat worrying doctors after the friend's surgery. You say the rapid heartbeat is caused by the latest SX landing (her nephew is an SX landing software engineer).

You're enjoying a quiet morning with a cup of coffee.

Suddenly breaking the quiet, the Mr. Coffee machine lets out a GGRRRAAAAAGGGHHHH...SSSSHHHHssshhhhhh complete with a cloud of steam.
