Herself came home last night, with a new toy - an old wooden board, covered in letters and numbers, with a small glass that we were to put our finger on.
I was reluctant, but ... you gotta keep the other half happy, and sometimes that means doing things you don't really want to.
So we sat down, and put our fingers on the glass.
It moved!
And at the same time, the air was filled with a weird discordant noise - I couldn't tell from where; it seemed to come from the very air around us!
The glass continued to move and I could see it was spelling out letters:
An 'A', then an 'L', an 'I', a 'V' and finally an 'E'
I snatched my finger away! "It's telling us it's ALIVE?" I yelled in horror. The sound stopped, and I relaxed a little.
She gave me That Look.
Sheepishly, I returned my finger to the glass. The sound resumed, and the glass started moving again: A...H...H...A...H...A...H...A
I jerked away again: "It's laughing at us!"
Again, The Look, promising me nights on the couch if I didn't continue ... reluctantly I returned to the glass.
S...T...A...Y...I...N...A...L...I...V...E
I grabbed the glass and threw it across the room as the horrible truth dawned upon me: I realized exactly what Herself had done.
How could she bring such evil into our home?

The horror, the horror. A Bee Gee Board...

My coat is just over there - could you pass it to me?
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
