The Dark Knight leaped from the Batmobile, weary from a night chasing Two-Face. Sloughing off his costume, he headed toward the refreshing touch of the shower.
"Don't leave that dirty uniform lying on the ground!", called Wonder Woman.
"That's okay, I'll get it cleaned up in a jiff, as soon as I finish cutting the grass.", Flash blurted out as he zipped through, a streak of red left in his wake.
As I sit and listen to my boys playing superheroes, I wonder...I never remember playing with them this way, capturing the moments in between the daring rescues, the mundane that even superheroes must endure. It gives me a chuckle just to listen to the dialogue, as someone uses their super strength to take out the trash.
I guess with most heroes there are thousands of moments that lead up to that one shining moment when they are needed. Or maybe it is in those thousands of mundane moments that we are the true heroes and paving the way for our sidekicks as they grow up.
