An Aiming Problem
Percy: That was some storm yesterday. Good thing it was a quick one.
Merci: Jan got home shortly after it went through and rushed us off on an early walk before the next one arrived. She took a photo of the sky on our way home.
Buddy: Jan made us walk in the middle of the road so she could get a good shot of the blackness framed between the trees. I can't wait to see how it turned out.
Percy: I think she already downloaded it. It should be easy to find. She hasn't taken any other photos since Monday.
Merci: Let's go see how it looks.
Percy: I can't find it. This is the only new picture I can find but that's the back of our house.
Merci: That can't be right. She distinctly said she was taking a picture of the black sky framed by trees. I don't see any sky at all. Do you?

Percy: I'm just wondering how Jan managed to miss the sky. It's not like it's the size of a splinter.
Merci: Not a word of this to Jan! Agreed?
