Ha. You are so right. Violin is the most beautiful instrument -- well, next to cello, for me -- but also the worst. Like a tortured cat at first. I went through the tortured-cat phase when I was a kid and on my folks' mountaintop-no-neighbors-in-sight-or-sound place.
My son went through the phase a couple years ago. I said what you said and then found lots of reasons to clean the garage.
I'm an okay player, always seeing how much more there is...you know. Also gracious neighbors!
