    Christmas 1968

    Pointing Fingers

     My dad had a realistic model of a hand in his home office. One evening, I took the hand and put it under my younger sister's bedcovers. When she went to bed that night and found the detached, life-like hand pointing up at her, well, it was worth getting grounded for.

    superheroes. One boy wanted to have invisibility powers. One girl wanted to fly. I wanted the ability to grow bigger. Many people would choose the common ones. I chose a rarely thought superpower.
