Short Tales from the Sticks

Baby Bug has discovered my old piano that lives at my mom’s house. It’s quite out of tune and the low “A” string is broken. I’ve always found it annoying when you’re playing along, you hit that key and all you get is a quiet thud. We never really had the money to get it fixed so we learned to play around it.

Baby Bug on the other hand is fascinated by the broken “A” key. She pulled her Auntie CC over and carefully plunks every key until she finds it.

“See,” she says to CC. “It needs a battery.”
