Just Call Me Edna

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.

Actual conversation:

"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.

Okay, Edna.

It's funny, but I really like capes for adults. It's cold here and I've been looking for a nice wool one to keep me warm. :-)

Safety first. That's our motto.
