Yesterday I spotted a fifth grader wearing a superhero cape while playing handball. Immediately, visions of cape-related accidents ran through my head. So I asked him to take it off.
"Please take off the cape. It's not safe."
"But Mr. P. gave it to me. He said it would give me superpowers."
"Haven't you seen the Incredibles? No capes. "
Just call me Edna Mode.
