I've found that a good way to be sure I get some attention is to walk on my mom's computer -- especially if she tries to set it aside and out of my way. Little does she know that anywhere within her arm's reach is not out of my way.
The other day I visited her on the couch. She was very busy doing something on her little laptop and she must have lost track of time. So I climbed up on the couch and into her lap. She promptly moved her computer up onto the arm of the sofa. So I climbed right up onto it, to make my point that I am here and she lost track of time.
Immediately she said, "Won! No! Get off! Oh! You messed up my computer! You made it all cuckoo! You made it go cuckoo for cocoa puffs. Off, off!"
She exaggerates. I did not make it go cuckoo for cocoa puffs. All I did was make it go bugsqaaaaa89wAQ2M,nj1 and make a funny noise. Well, several funny noises, actually. And some funny things on the screen. But nothing blew up, no smoke came out of the machine. That can hardly be called going cuckoo for cocoa puffs, can it? My mom appears to be a bit prone to exaggeration. And I don't know why she gets all cautious with her computer. The keyboard isn't even comfortable to sit on. It makes my butt feel weird.
