You've had that feeling, that desire to do it anyway. The button was stuck in the off position with tape, and had the word "no" written on it. I mean, it was a rental accomodation, so if it all went wrong at least it wasn't my house. But the worry about what could happen, something unknown. I was warned. I was stupid. I flicked the switch. Nothing appeared to happen, so I flicked it back off again. I put the sticky tape back on it and left it alone for a day. Then a week. Then month. Then the electric bill came. I don't think I can afford to be curious again.
