Instruments of War, part II

Please look at the previous post, "Instruments of War", before reading this.

One viewer of the image from the said post tells this sad tale:

"Here's the story, and it is TRUE!

My son (age 11) and his friend (also age 11) were playing around on my computer. Apparently, there was an exciting play to make on this game. The boys simultaneously yelled, "Alright!" and then the accordion that I have displayed on the top shelf above the computer fell off the shelf.

The accordion landed square in the middle of my son's face. It broke his new glasses, and left quite a huge goose egg between his eyebrows."



I'll let you draw your own life lessons from this. One more thing... she also mentioned that her husband plays the banjo...

It's the banjo that's really dangerous. I saw Deliverance.

OUCH! In our house you have to beware of low flying theorbo. A theorbo is a lute with an incredibly long neck, a bit like playing a stuffed giraffe... I haven't damaged any humans, but I have clipped an awful lot of light bulbs...sigh.
