At ten, I was murder with a spool of thread.
Afternoons after school, I would wind an entire spool
around doornobs, picture frames, and any potruding surface I could find.
And then I would wait at the end of the long hall
for sis to come home, having hoarded every pair of scissors in the house.

Oh man, that's such a great visual... and an incredibly creative form of revenge.

I did pretty much the same thing, except with yarn. I mainly focused on making overhead webs, which was fun because I was 4'6" and everyone else in the house was taller.
