Scene: people are visiting at the house, all sitting on the living room trying to have a conversation. The Dormouse is filtting around the room, climbing on people's laps then off them, on the chair, off the chair, on the back of the couch, up to the catpost, hangs upside down off the edge of the catpost, falls, then climbs back up, jumps to the couch, falls off the couch, cries, repeats from beginning. Finally, KoH has had it and becomes impatient.

"Sit down on that chair correctly and sit still now!"

angrily flinging arms up and down by her sides: "But Daaaaaaddy... I've. Got. To. SHOW. OFF!"

At least we know how to call a spade a spade.
