If you were a super hero, what would your name be, and what would your super power be?
This takes me back a few months. Litlbit and I are sitting in the darkened theatre, watching Mr. Incredible land for the first time on Nomanisan Island. He stretches, giving us a little too intimate a view of his belly, and then takes off into the forest at a trot. We then watch as his trot becomes more and more laboured, as he gasps for air, as he tries to make his body do what he remembers it used to. My wife snickers beside me, leans in and whispers "I recognize that - it's the Ex-Athlete Shuffle."
I laughed, because while that's cruel, it's also the truth.
Since the job of Mr. Incredible is already taken, and because I'm not as partial to Feckless Sidekick as I let on, I'll just have to go with [ringing announcer voice] Ex-Athlete Man!!! [/ringing announcer voice].
As far as my powers are concerned: I can run fast, but not nearly as fast as I used to, and waterborne evil-doers should beware of my devastating cannonball. I believe I can wheeze villians to death, but only after lunching on something especially garlicky. I can be defeated by throwing a ball in front me - I'll chase it until my face turns red and I drop. Oh, and I have a superheroic memory! Just ask me, and I'll regale you with stories of my past athleticism.
Now, who to tag? How about the entire Cirque du Blog crowd from Friday night? You're it!
