Have you ever looked at something and seen something else?
I do frequently. One of my favorite blogs is Things Look Like Things. The blogger, whom I assume is a woman, has a much more refined eye than I. Comparatively, I go at things with a sledge hammer.
A friend gave me this kitchen gadget for opening jars. Looks lethal, doesn't it. The only thing I can see when I look at it is the business end of a stag beetle.
