Are they saying it to someone else? "You" - one person? more?

It - an item? Something intangible?

Is the item made of metal? Wood? Plastic? Glass? Cloth? Food? Metal, plastic, and glass.

So the item is made of metal, plastic AND glass, correct?

Is it primarily: Metal? Plastic? Glass?

Is the glass breakable?

Is the item a toy?

The item is meant to be caught in one (or two) hands, so is it small enough to be held in one hand? Or is someone meant to catch hold of the item by some part of it, instead?

Would it have been reasonable to expect them to catch it? Did a specific circumstance prevent them from catching it?

Was there more than one person supposed to be catching? Is the item large? is it precious?

Not before the monitor fell, but definitely after If so, was there a reason that it was easier to kick it over FA! with the electronics still on it rather than remove them first? Was the idea to kick it with the electronics on it just "for the fun of it"? There's an element of "for the fun of it," but clearing that FA will help

Was the desk kicked to prove how sturdy it was? was it thought that in no way could the desk break from a kick?

Was the desk kicked to prove how sturdy it was? Not exactly, but... was it thought that in no way could the desk break from a kick? ...close enough. It was thought that the kick wouldn't be strong enough to break the desk.
