Characters: Curious X (that would be me) and Unsuspecting Y (that would be you)
Setting: From my PC, to the comfort of your home
Props: Spy goggles (details do matter!) and a web cam
Scene 1: Y’s frowning. Biting his/her lips. A second later, Y gets to his/her feet and starts pacing up and down the room. Y seems troubled. He/she turns his/her back for a second. About turn and:
Curious X: Oh, God, no! Picking your nose, Y? Again!?!
Scene 2: X throws away the goggles, shuts down the PC and sets off to find happiness elsewhere.

Just ask around and your spying wishes come true:
Unfortunately, poetic justice strikes the “don’t mind your own business” trade and the hunter turns to prey in no time at all.
Perhaps a more convincing tone? Let’s strive for artistic truth.
Still lacking on the emotion side.
How about that? Three missed chances of getting your PC infected.
Spies live on the edge, that’s no news, even for kids. But not even spies would go twirling on slippery slopes like these.
