Yes, you too can become your very own superhero! All it takes is a cape or sufficiently cape-looking item, and you're golden.
Alana, Tarik, and I were busily preparing last week after school for our big school presentation. We were down the hall, sprawled out on the floor, creating some posters on sticky-backed chart paper. Packing up all of the materials to head back to the classroom, Alana carried the markers and one poster, Tarik had the meter stick for tracing lines and another poster, and I had my computer and the third poster. Out of hands to carry the last poster, I stuck it to Tarik's shoulders and we set off down the hall.
"I'm a new superhero" declared Tarik, the air ruffling his paper cape behind him as we walked. "Poster Man!"
And presto! A new sidekick for Batman or Spiderman was born. Able to...draw....tall block letters in a single bound. Fights the evil marker smudges....
Well. Maybe not.
Alana gave it some thought. "Poster Man is the worst super hero ever" she declared. Eh. He tried.
