I am going to make a 'Mother Audio Recording.' I think it might make my fortune. I am going to hook up speakers to all the rooms here in our apartment at The Towers and I shall carry a remote control unit in my pocket.

On the remote control unit I will be able to select whichever answer is required to a variety of questions. They might include, but will not be exclusive to the following questions:

  • Why do we have to do homework the minute we get home?

  • Why do we have to do homework? – It’s the weekend.

  • Can we have ‘Friends’ on while we eat dinner?

  • Why must I do French homework when there isn’t any set by my teacher?

  • Can’t I pack my school bags in the morning?

I think pressing buttons will be so much less effort than saying it all again and again and again and again…

PS I have fitted the Mother Audio Recording (trademark) with sighs and tuts for authenticity. There will of course be a range of volumes, from gentle and nurturing to full blown lost-it-shriek.

Brilliant! It will make your fortune. If you need backing take it to the Dragon's Den. Demand £1m for 1% share and you'll get it.
