You just start talking off the top of your head, "Heyyy there! I'm Paperclip, you know, the electrician, uh . . . can I borrow this roly-poly little guy to help me out with a crawl space situation?" Then thinking that it might further lend to your credibility, you pull out the pair of scissors and wave them around in a knowledgeable sort of way.
  1. It's okay. Just keep cool and keep talking.
  2. This isn't working. Wink at the rolling head and cut the power to the television.
  3. They're on to you! Use the scissors to stab the nearest wizard.
