Conservation of Crankiness

Newton's long-forgotten fourth law, according to the physics teacher in the family, is the Conservation of Crankiness. We observed this in action the other night. It was quite amazing. Dylan was as grumpy as can be, while Andrea was very happily getting ready for bed. Then, once Dylan calmed down ready to listen to stories, Andrea became grumpy. We did not see how the crankiness was transferred, but it was quite a phenomenon.

The mystery to me is how on some evenings we have a low level of total crankiness, but on others it is a high level. I need to understand how to transfer the crankiness outside of our house!
