Larger Pests

Having successfully conquered living with cockroaches, lizards, mozzies and spiders, the biggest pests of all show up in the house - the neighbours kids. One lets himself in the back door without explaining why he’s come, changes the channel on the TV while we’re watching it, can’t find the India-Sri Lanka game because it’s not on until tomorrow, dumps the remote, tries to find the games on our computers of which there are none that interest him and then spends twenty minutes playing the snake game on the mobile phone. Having realized that subtlety won’t work and he doesn’t understand the words “Go away”, wish he really was pest-sized for purely self-indulgent need to squish him with sole of boot.
