My daughter surprised me with a fabulous development this evening when I picked her up from afterschool care.
Definitely More Initiative Than I Had at Age Eight
She had developed a survey and interviewed her friends at school and at aftercare. The question: Who is your favorite superhero?
And the winner is: Aquaman
I know. Weird, right? There’s not even an Aquaman movie! Apparently the whole underwater breathing thing is a hotly coveted skill among third graders.
I won’t state the obvious about women always being viewed as second best. We should point out that she was a hero not just to the girls, but to several boys as well. Smart boys! This feminist icon just plain rocks.
A tie. Green Hornet and Flash. Maybe it’s the Christmas colors?
