        As apparently easy as it is to simply add flags, to add flags for
something like each general type of object would require well, many flags.
Why don't you just use the action description - or if you're using that
for the message when you sit down, why don't you make a duplicate of it
for when you fail to sit on it, or when you sit up....
        If you just make one for when you sit up - you can use that as the
fail to sit on it - since if sit mesg is null, and get up isn't, its a
non-sense situation, so you'll saveyourself an extra string.
