Knock Three Times on the Ceiling

So I'm sitting here in the study, reading Sofia Sideshow and minding my own business, when there's a terrific stomping on the ceiling.

"Man," I think to myself, "the upstairs neighbors are really clomping around up there. You almost never hear them."

And then I recall that this is because we don't have any upstairs neighbors, since we live on the top floor. Yesterday I noticed a ladder propped against the building; presumably they're inspecting the roof. Maybe for Shuttle debris.

We have concerns about the ceiling in this room, since it looks a bit as if the roof beams and things are settling against it. I hope it doesn't decide to collapse under the men and kill me.
