Last night I went to have a bath and specifically told my son and daughter to behave while I was out of the room for say, 30 minutes….when I returned to the lounge, Wonderboy informed me that he had turned the computer off to help stop our families contribution to global warming.
Hmmmm, I thought….this sounds fishy.
“Wonderboy, what have you done?”, said I.
“Nothing!”, replied Wonderboy.
“Tell the truth, Wonderboy”, said his sister.
“Well, y’know how you said I was never to put magnets on the computer screen….well, I wanted to see what happened…I’m sorry Mum”, said Joe in an a way that almost had me believing that he was completely justified in caving in to his curiosity.
“What!”, I shrieked, “How could you be so stupid!”.
I turned on the computer to find that I now have a patch of what looks like a dark urine coloured stain on every webpage and document, on, in fact, everything viewed on this monitor.
” Get your pyjamas on and have your inhaler, your going to bed. NOW!”, I yelled.
