It hurts me that you eventually succeed when you so richly deserve to fail

Mental Health
It was one of those benignly bored evenings, and Hank and Henry fell to discussing videos they had seen on the internet, pretty much by default. 
Hank said, "Have you seen the one where it's this guy's birthday and he's blindfolded and they're bringing him a cake but he loses his balance and falls on the cake, and then there's just three whole minutes of him laying on the ground, still blindfolded, just eating the messed-up cake with his face and still crying?" 
"No, man. Let's watch it." Henry's tone was a perfect blend of the mild curiosity and benign indifference he felt.
 "Just...let...me...bring...it...up," Hank mumbled, but to his horror, Henry saw that Hank had just typed 'www.youtube.com' into his Bing search bar, and, when the results loaded, waved his cursor around the screen while trying to choose one of the results. He clenched his teeth and took a very slow breath as he watched on, feeling real pain but unable to look away.
