Sibling Terrorism

Yesterday I went to investigate some loud squeals of protest from Lily and found Luke, holding my piano tuning hammer, pretending he was going to hit her with it. I took away the offending implement, but failed to put it away. I turned around a few minutes later when Lily started squealing in terror again and found not Luke but Esther now threatening her sister with the tool. She was very upset when I took it from her! I guess teasing is contagious. I just wish Lily wouldn't encourage it by responding with such tempting squeals!

The image of Esther terrorizing Lily with a piano tuning hammer is actually quite funny!

At least they were only teasing. In our house with rough and rowdy boys, squeals are usually the result of much worse.

Wait a minute...you know how to tune a piano?? How did you learn? I've been thinking about how that would be a nice skill to have, and would save me considerable money.
