We were all having dinner at the table the other night, and Miss Emily was doing her usual trick of getting down and making excuses to go and get things so she didn't have to sit still. I caught her by the hand as she was about to get down from her chair for the gazillionth time, and her father said sternly "Get up!"
The next thing you know, there was an echo, "Get up!" coming from the other side of the table. Our heads both spun around, and there was Ben, looking at Luke with a big grin on his face. "Did you hear that Mum? Luke said 'Get up!'" Neil and I looked at each other in amazement. It was as clear as a bell, and definitely Luke, not Ben.
Poor Em, being bossed around by both her brothers already!
