Invention

As I was going through my photos from the past couple of months, I found a photo that I took while I was on a plane to Utah a couple of months ago.  It requires a little bit of a backstory...

When I was little - like, elementary-school aged - a friend and I came up with this brilliant idea for an invention.  It consisted of a camera at your front door so that when someone came to your house, it would take a picture of them.  We figured it would mostly be useful if you weren't home and wanted to know if someone stopped by, or if someone broke into your house and you wanted to snap a photo of them.  We were super serious about it, but never did anything but draw pictures of it.

Imagine my surprise when I was looking through the SkyMall catalogue on the airplane and found this:

If you can read the description, it is EXACTLY what we had envisioned.  Kinda weird, huh?

(Maeg, if you're reading this, do you remember when we came up with this?)
