Grime Fighter!

Summer days. I spent half my childhood wearing a cape. Granted, my superhero outfits were made from bath towels and swimsuits (nothing this fancy). Nevertheless, I was–and continue to be–a legend in my own mind. You?

  1. Ah yes, those were the days. Running around outside, fearless, letting your imagination roam. I did much the same (I imagine a lot of kids did) in wearing a cape I make shifted out of a blanket or towel.

    I used to pretend to be Batman (my favorite comic book character at the time) and fight crime. Fun times!

    Wonderfully nostalgic post. Yes, we were all legends in our own mind I’m sure…and sometimes we still are. 😉

    Cheers! ^_^

    I once had a little Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Lego Masterbuilder, etc….I miss that kid so much.
    He’s a grown man now. I find myself asking, “Where did the time go?”
    Great post. Brought back some really sweet memories.

  3. Ha! I love that photo, how adorable. Superheros are the best! Also, you should always marry a man who wears a cape, even if it’s made out of a towel. It’s that simple. (Except perhaps not a vampire. Drag him out in the sunlight and see what happens.) Mostly, however capes are awesome. 🙂

  5. Love the title and the photo. Nope, never imagined being a superhero. Pretty sure that idea would’ve gotten squashed quickly in a family of eight. But, my parents raised all of us to think we could do whatever we set our sights on. To dream big!

    I can’t say I ever wanted to be a superhero, either. But we did spend a lot of time developing our skills in medieval warfare, making crossbows and longbows. (Unsurprisingly, neither ever worked properly, but that wasn’t the point.) We also built innumerable forts – that experience does come in handy whenever I need to do some DIY around the house. But I wouldn’t go so far as to consider myself a DIY legend.

    What a lovely photo. I’d like to think the little boy is reading a DC or Marvel comic. When I was little, I read my brother’s hero comics, but preferred to recruit him and my two younger siblings for acting out Grimm’s fairy tales. Or, fairly grim tales. Later I was a stage performer, but that’s another story for another time. ☺

  9. Back in the 50’s we were all into running around in the woods playing cowboys and indians – not very PC, but it was the 50’s!
