It started badly I’d woken late then I couldn’t find my purse. So I was rushing to work then somehow was lying by the side of the road and seconds later I was in a hospital bed. As I was wondering if the day could get any worse I turned to the monitor, a flat line turned sideways into a ladder promptly climbed by an ape. The music from Donkey Kong rang in my ears.

“Pauline! Can you hear me?”

“I think we’re losing her.”

On the monitor the bonus counter flashed a zero and GAME OVER filled the screen.

    "Please select respawn point." Would always be a welcome thing to see.
