Putting a large defecating snail on my mouse (computer, not yet another pet). A mouse coloured, camouflage snail.
Enlisting me to locate and listen to several hundred different varieties of the Pokemon theme tune on Youtube until I could feel my ears starting to bleed.
Making me handle ketchup repeatedly until I started retching.
Repeating my name at ever increasing volume and shrillness, oblivious to any attempts I made to reply, until the noise was reminiscent of the CFO's new cat deterrent machine. Not being able to remember why they were calling me when I crawl up three flights of stairs moaning gently to respond.
Leaving a length of cable stretched across the room for me to trip over, landing on my knees and breaking an enormous tea cup into a million razor sharp shards.
Giving me a bemused glance as I lay prostrate and cursing in a pool of cold tea and going straight back to fighting over strident games on the computer. My computer.

Just as soon as I can move" I said in my rah rah middle class mummy voice that makes me want to beat myself senseless. To a roomful of total indifference.

And that was nice.
