    Terrors Of Childhood

    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.
