Minerva turned the volume up on the telly until it boomed and left the room, leaving her mother glued to the flickering screen in front of her. Funny how something so mundane could have such a magical effect. She despised the television almost as much as she despised her mother. They were welcome to each other.
She found herself wondering if she knew of a dodgy electrician, someone who could fix the insignificant box in the corner of the room with some sort of detonating device, timed to go off when there was no one else in the house or anyway near it…except for her mother. It could be messy though, and of course there was the fire risk, but worth adding to her list all the same. It was true what they said, you had to be very careful what you wished for…it was important to get it right.
Only the right electrician would do.
