c) He’s dead to me since taking top bunk in our mansion share-room.
d) His brandy snaps are to die for.
It seems like a lot of people got top bunks. Would you say you were out for revenge?
Why don’t you take a look at this white space for a minute while you think about your answer:
Let’s try that again. Were you out for revenge?

So you admit that you deal with rods. You admit that you may have touched the kind of rod that could do serious damage to a man’s skull… a steel rod from the Martha Stewart Kitchen line, say. You don’t have to answer that. Let’s talk about your situation. You know how to navigate, don’t you.

But we all lose our way sometimes, don’t we.

Hey, we’re not out to get you. You’re a good person. The kind of person that doesn’t deserve to be shunted into a top bunk.
a) I just don’t like climbing ladders in socks.
I’m on your side. When someone decides to assign the bottom bunk to themselves, they’re risking your life. Bunk beds break. Man is fallible. There are splinters. The ceiling is low.

Good. Who were you with?

I see. How do you make a brandy snap?

a) He was making the brandy snaps.
And what happened during that time?
a) He was hit with a metal rod.
a) In the kitchen.
You hit him, didn’t you. Why did you do it?
a) Because he took the bottom bunk, and I don’t like sock and ladders.
What does Martha Stewart have to do with all this?
a) Her branding is impeccable.

Did you kill Professor Plum?
Did you kill Professor Plum?
DID YOU KILL PROFESSOR PLUM?
Did you tickle Professor Plum?
a) Na— no.
I have your words right here, that say you were in the kitchen with Professor Plum, angry about sleeping in a loft of rising, lowly, bottom-bunk air, with a weapon in hand. You have admitted hitting the professor with that cooking implement. Are you guilty of killing Professor Plum in the kitchen?
Is there anything else you’d like to confess?
a) I thought it was Kim Kashardian for the longest time.
