Me: banging on the piano. Discordantly. Loudly.
J: whats that noise, you're going to wake the neighbours!
Me: um, I'm not actually trying to play the piano...
J: well what are you DOING then?
Me: Trying to catch a lizard.
Me: I saw a lizard scurrying behind the piano, I'm trying to make it leave.
Me: it doesn't seem to care
J: maybe the lizard's deaf.
