Mortality and Ma Bell

Some days, what comes out is exactly what went in.

From the backseat: “Why did Riley’s dog die, Mom?”

“It was very old, Bug.”

“Will Tesserwell die, Mom?”

“Not for a long time, Honey.”

“Will I get old, and you and Gbot?”

“Not for a very long time, Moon Pie.”

“Riley asked if I could save her dog. But I couldn’t. I’m not really a superhero.”

When’s the last time the world made you realize your superhero costume was just fancy pajamas?
