Mouse Arrest— Forbidden the use of the computer.
Okay, kids, so you go on your PC up at the house, and thought you’d go do some downloading from whatever media service you choose, and it seems some cyber pranksters were up to no good. Boom! Virus…. and now, until your Mom or Dad get the antivirus software to kill that trojan or worm, you are under Mouse Arrest. No net surfing, no online RPGs, no music videos, nothin’. Mouse Arrest is an indefinite term of punishment, sort of like Cat Jail, where one sends one’s rowdy pet outside to stop it from tearing around the house. Like Cat Jail, Mouse Arrest gives you many freedoms, and maybe this is the time to go use them. Go outside, play some Red Rover or Hide and Seek, or simply play on the swings at the park down the street. This is not a real sentence, just a time-out from cyberspace. Who knows, you might end up having so much fun, your Mouse Arrest might have been worth it.
