At breakfast this morning:
Josh: Mom, if you could fix your leg by eating hummus every day, would you do it?
Me: Of course I would! I eat hummus almost every day anyway. What if you could get super powers but you had to eat hummus EVERY DAY? Would you do it?
Josh: *grossed out face* NO. But if there are super heroes, there’d be super villains, right? So I guess I’d just be a super villain.
Me: No, no, no, it doesn’t work like that. You’d probably have to eat something to get super villain powers, too.
Josh: Like what?
Me: Mmm, like….onion and pepper salad. Every day!
Josh: Ew! Forget it! I don’t want powers.
Me: Well, you know I eat hummus almost every day and salad almost every day and I have peppers and onions in it. And I’m not a super hero or a super villain.
Josh: So…you’re Deadpool?
Aaaand that’s how I became Deadpool.
