DC: the Saint

We bring you an unexpected announcement of possible paranormal activity related to our daughter, Trinhity. In the photograph below, note the staggering similarity of her wardrobe to that of the saint in the framed picture.

You're probably thinking that the big white spot is the camera flash, and you're probably right. But what if it isn't? What if it's really a Ghost Orb? Maybe it's really an extension of the Saint's halo, a digitally-captured expression of "the light of divine grace suffusing the soul, which is perfectly united and in harmony with the physical body."

What if it's a reflection of Trinhity's halo? Then what? Nothing, probably. But it's amusing to ask, no?

You see, this picture was taken innocently at St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Reston, Virginia, where the wedding was held. I'd remembered only that the church was called "St. John's", so I was initially rather confused as to the identity of the saint pictured. Try as I might, I just couldn't figure out how Saint John the Apostle would have gotten himself such modern headgear.

Speaking of headgear, Trinhity didn't keep that hat on for very long.

As you can see, the only halo she's got is a thin layer of light brown hair -- that pretty much shoots down any paranormal connections. Besides, according to strict doctrinal interpretations, halos related to the Trinity are supposed to be triangular. Oh well.

Honest, we didn't set these up. It just so happened that Trinhity arrived at the wedding dressed exactly like the church's patron saint. That's just *gotta* mean something profound on a metaphysical level...I just haven't figured out what.
