Ane asks an important question

On our way home from school/dropping Auntie off at softball practice:

Ane: Mommy, does our city have any heroes?

Me: What, honey? (thinking that I hadn’t heard her correctly)

Ane: Does our city have any superheroes?

Me: Not really.

Ane: (big sigh) I asked (insert two boys’ names from her preschool class) about it today, and they said that they didn’t know about any superheroes in our city, either. We don’t have Superman around here.

Me: Superheroes just don’t hang around like they used to, kiddo.

Ane: Yeah.

    Even Brian Singer can’t bring back Superman, it seems.

    And the rumors that the Warchowski (sp?) bros. are doing the next Superman reboot are false.

    At least Head has his super suit. Tell Ane that!
