Quote of the (Satur)day (morning)

Running late in posting a Friday afternoon quote, as per usual. So here's a good-natured thought relayed to me by Vaclav the Czech, especially appropriate given my dwinding funds:
"Living on the earth is expensive. But it does come with a yearly
free trip around the sun." - source unknown.

This makes me wonder. Which is a less pleasurable activity: tying your shoelaces or drying off after a shower? Both are obviously subordinate activities for a great purpose that are not really enjoyable in and of themselves.

However, they differ in an important respect. While tying your shoes preceed the main activity, drying off follows the main activity. What are the implications of this?

Which takes longer?

Which is more complicated?

While you can buy shoes without laces, showers without water are clearly not as good a substitute.
