This evening at dinner we were discussing the merits of various superheroes. Z asked me who my favorite superhero is, and we had the following conversation:
Me: My favorite superhero is Buffy.
Z: Who's Buffy?
Me: Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She fights vampires.
Z: What are her super powers?
Me: She has super human strength and super human healing powers.
Z: What are her weaknesses?
Me: Hmmm . . . I think the fact that she's in love with a vampire is her weakness.
Z: Yeah, that's a good weakness. But her super powers aren't very good. I bet Max Steele could beat her. I bet the Hulk could beat her.
Me: No they couldn't.
Z: Yes they could. They have the same powers she has plus more.
Me: She has other powers, too. She's smart and funny and loyal and brave and kind and she takes her responsibilities seriously and --
Eden (interrupting calmly): And she's skinny.
What the what??
