Thanks man,

I tried to ask me mum and sis tonight to do it with me, but they
couldn't care less... :(

I tried it last night, when i'm supposedly most receptive, on myself
and it kind of worked...

I pretended i was the dude doing the suggesting in my head, and done
the whole count to 3 thing.

What happened was i removed my hands a little so the palms weren't
touching but the fingers were still together, then it felt odd :p

I tried to pull and felt my arms tighten, then i kinda lost it, and i
could pull it apart :/ :D

Try again t'night though, thanks :)

Just wish my family were as good as yours...

Although i did try it before, but my mum didn't really believe me so
it didn't work - and i didn't do the falling over thing, thought she
might hurt herself :p

Thanks
