Living with Superman
You probably didn't know this, but I live with Superman. Most of the time he is undercover as a preschooler who goes by the name Evan. But then duty calls, and he transforms into his superhuman self, cape and all.
Sometimes Superman likes to go to Target. We went the other day, and our fellow shoppers were clearly impressed by the sight of the Man of Steel. It's not every day that he walks so openly among the public.
Funny, the things I've learned from living with Superman. Like how he loves to swing with his cape flying out behind him. (What's not to love about that?) And how he sees vegetables as a bigger threat than kryptonite. He is also a bit shorter and more giggly than I would have thought.
Superman is great at fighting bad guys, and often saves the day from Busyness, Seriousness, and Potential Monotony. His primary weapons are creativity, silliness, and joy.
But the biggest secret I've discovered about Superman? Sometimes he is Batman.
