Drabble: Enthusiasm


“So, you haven’t told us about the new job, Robert.”

“Oh, yeah, Grandma. Well, it’s nothing, really.”

“Oh, honey, tell them.” Mom been really annoying with the “proud mother of...” routine ever since she found out.

“I’m not really supposed to–”

“Oh, it’s Grandma and Grandpa. If you don’t tell them, I will.”


“He’s Spectacular Man’s new sidekick!”

“It’s really more of an internship...”

“Oh, don’t be humble, it’s unbecoming.”

“Sonny, this calls for a toast. Go get out the scotch.”

“Pops, you know the doctor said–”

“Margaret, the boy’s a superhero!”

“Sidekick,” said Mom.

If I had superpowers...
