I have developed a compulsion to try and take out every light in one smooth, clean sweep, as fast as possible, with my mouse.

It's harder than you might think.
I am in this same "Boat"...my left to right sweep is pretty good...but my right to left needs work 8)
Me, too. Try it with your non-dominant hand. You'll think you are having a stroke or something.
You guys are starting to worry me. Next you'll be telling me you sit on one hand till it goes numb, and then try to sweep the lights calling it the 'Stranger Danger Light Dash'.

At that point, y'all need to be performing the Dance of Shame in the most immediate room corner, ASAP.

Honestly....
I'm gonna try it.

The closer we get to Christmas, the more I tolerate the crashing light bulbs.

We will take note of that on your permanent record.

I just tried it with a roller-ball in place of the regular mouse...that's gonna take some practice....I'll tell the boss, not much work is gonna get done today.

I just had two perfect sweeps in a row (yes, I'm working - on hold awaiting a telemeeting).

Sweet! I hear the Olympic Committee is considering the "Bulb Sweep" for the 2022 games.

I just finished a memo and checked in here, 1 page/string of lights left to right sweep with all bulbs broken. I gave up on the rollerball...it wouldn't spin/roll true.

I probably wouldn't pass the PED test.

I also heard that they were going to contact Pepik to be one of the course designer's and maybe a judge

I'm much more accurate left to right than right to left.

So, may we have fireworks to blast or something from Memorial Day through Labor Day?
