  Once upon a time, Superman lived in my house. Amazingly, he looked just like my brother. Obviously this was before the red cape and the big S on his chest because when he was at my house, he flew around in his underwear and used a towel for a cape.

On this particular day, Superman was fighting evil as usual, when an unfortunate incident occurred. Now remember, Superman is very strong and courageous, he has no fear but on this day, he met an evil so strong, that it could not be defeated. As he was on his tall building looking out over the city, he saw danger and heard cries for help. "NEVER FEAR" he cried and lept off the couch...I mean building to help those in distress. Somehow, Superman slipped and instead of flying thru the air he was landing on his bottom! "Ouch!" he yelled and then something astounding happened. Superman began to cry.

Superman's father heard his cries and came running to his aide. When he saw what happened, he looked at him and said "Superman doesn't cry." Superman stood up and with righteous indignation, pointed to the couch with one hand, while rubbing his bottom with the other said "He would if he fell off that couch!"

So ended the saga of Superman at our house that day. Don't be sad because Superman went off to become a fine superhero and well as you would guess, another superhero moved right in. Odd that this one moved in because my brother never really like spiders......
