For Saturday Because It Made Me Laugh

He cries out, “TAKE OFF!” and zooms past.  I ask him, “Are you Superman?”

“Yeah…but no…I don’t have the powers.”

“What powers?”

“I can’t fly,” he confesses, eyes to the floor.

“Oh,” I say it surprised. Then I note,  “Superman also has super strength.”

His eyes light up,”YEAH! If I was Superman, I would fly and be super strong and kill weeds!”

“Uh. Okay,” I choke, with my eyes to the floor. I manage not to laugh and we both walk together, thinking about gardens, me and my Almost Superman.

  1. This is very sweet. Can you fly him on over to help with our morning glory problem?

    You'll have to tell him that the original Superman couldn't fly — he could only leap tall buildings in a single bound.
