Do you ever hear the sounds of destruction coming from the other room and still not get up from your chair? The bangs and crashes and occasional screams? And yet you sit there, finishing your tea and thinking, "Just let me have this quiet moment." And you hope that while you languidly finish your drink no one is bleeding or being electrocuted or swallowing pennies in the other room. You think – for a moment – that if they are bleeding or frying or having a snack of pocket change they will be OK for the two more quiet minutes it takes to drink your tea.
Anyone ever do that?
