You’ve been such a good little thing tonight. Hardly even complained at all. I promise I’ll do my very best never again to make you run not one but two massive astronomical simulation programs at the same time.
But because of your hard work, I now know that I have to rewrite one of the scenes in this book.
Er, thanks. I think.

ETA: P.S. Sorry. I lied about the “never again” thing. That’s what you get for being so cooperative.
