Katie handed me her iPhone. There was a photo of clouds on the screen and she said, “Now tell me what you see, I’m not going to say what I think it looks like, but you just tell me what you see.” “Well,” I said immediately, “it is a great big hand flippin’ the bird.” “WHAT?!?” she said, “NO! It’s an angel.” “An angel?” I answered. “Where do you see an angel? That is a big hand giving the one finger salute, plain as day.” “Oh,” she said, “I didn’t see that before.
