I have The Boy Wonder this weekend and he's as entertaining as ever. Here's an extract from the drive home on Friday night:
Me: So how's your week been, fella?
TBW: It's been really good, we went swimming at school and I got to dress up as a Roman when we went to Bosworth Battlefield*.
Me: Well it sounds like you had a pretty ace week then.
TBW: I'm having my best year ever.
Me: Wow! I didn't realise things were as good as that. Why the best year ever?
TBW: Well I'm learning interesting stuff at school and my arch-nemesis doesn't recognise me anymore**.
The Boy Wonder is 7.
I often wondered what TBW would be when he grew up. I'd hoped for something cool and well paid for him but I never figured on him being a superhero.
* - Yes, I know that The Battle of Bosworth was a civil war affair, but I guess they just had an offer on for the Roman outfits that day.
** - After further questioning it turns out that his arch-nemesis is in fact a girl who once stood on him whilst wearing roller skates, so I suspect it's less a case of not recognising him and more a case of not being interested in him. Besides, standing on someone whilst wearing roller skates is a pretty piss poor power for any self respecting super-villain.
