Munch was doing a little homework after dinner one night and Dash did not appreciate her efforts. In his defense the decibel level in our home as Munch improves has been astounding. I have often wondered how soloist could sing over an orchestra, until now. It's been wonderful to see her gain confidence as she learns to master her voice.
I think Loaf covered her ears more in mimicking Dash than because it was very loud. Along with learning to control Munch has become conscious of her new found strength and very cautious around her siblings.
Except maybe around Arnold, but then they just have that kind of relationship. This expression could have also been a result of Munch's explanation of her physics internship which starts on Monday. It's delightful to have our opera major speak "physics" in a blur of words and terminology. A foreign language for us art people.
