A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words, Right?

Okay so a close family member lives a long way away. He's just had surgery. Wendy was on the phone asking another close family member to describe the incision. She started doodling on a notepad, drawing what was being described.

So me, being the practical person I am, asked if maybe they had a picture they could send. These folks are technologically competent after all. Then we could really see what's going on.

Is there anything odd about that idea? Anything funny? I sure didn't think so. I thought it was the ultimate in practical modern communication. Evidently I'm the only one. Hrumph.
