My visual dictionary

Someday, when I am a tenured nonagenarian professor rattling around an ivory tower somewhere, I will create a visual dictionary of the English language. And under the listing for "unintended consequences" I will put a picture of a man who, having spent twenty minutes trying to get silicone caulk to come out of a tube, steps on it, covering his favorite sneakers in said caulk, which he then spends over an hour trying to clean off of them, and in the process gets some of it on various household items and the refinished hardwood floors, which then must likewise be cleaned off.

Might take more than one picture, actually.
