Finish This Sentence #3 – Superhero
I didn’t plan to be a superhero, but all of that changed when I got bit by a turtle. I’d hardly even call it a superhero. Sure, the protective shell is great, but needing to sleep under a dozen heating lamps at night wasn’t exactly my idea of being super.
I remembered that cartoon I used to watch as a child, but they were skateboard-riding, pizza-eating, nun-chuck-slinging fighting machines! Not me! I’m about a tenth of the speed I was before this whole ordeal. I don’t even have fingers for Pete’s sake! Just flat stubs at the end of short arms. I can completely retract them inside my shell though, so there’s that. I’m not sure what that gets me, but I can do it.
No, being a hero isn’t what I thought it would be, but the children I visit in the hospital find it amazing and that’s what makes me super… to them at least.
