The Grunion Meets Wonder Woman
During the big snow storm, we got a surprise visit from a superhero (not LJ).
WW/LJ: Hiya! I'm here to save you from the snow!
WW/LJ: I'm Wonder Woman! And I deflect bullets with my wristbands....
WW/LJ: And get bad guys to tell the truth with my lasso of truth!
WW/LJ: Come here, little boy! I'm going to force you to tell the truth about who shaved a heart on the dog for valentine's day!
GRUNION: Ahhhh! Run away, puppy! Run away!
GRUNION: Hey puppy, where'd she go?
WW/LJ: Hiya! Here I am! I flew back here from down the hall!
GRUNION: Why do you keep saying "Hiya"?
WW/LJ: What's with the questions? How bout a big kiss?
GRUNION: Dammit! Do I have superhero lipstick on my face?
GRUNION: So, um.... how's the superhero game treatin ya?
WW/LJ: It's okay, but our union dues are goin up, and they're slashing our benefits-you know, same old crap.
GRUNION: You ever think about goin solo? You know, doing some consulting and such?
WW/LJ: Yeah, but it's a big risk right now with the economy and everything. Plus I'd lose my time in position for seniority and all the stock vesting time...it just sucks.
GRUNION: What about retirement? Are you good to-
WW/LJ: I don't even want to talk about it. I should have started saving way earlier when I was with the superfriends, you know?
WW/LJ: Man, these boots are killing me!
GRUNION: Yeah, me too.
GRUNION: Hey look! There's a guy out there getting mugged!
WW/LJ: Crap. Did anyone see me?
GRUNION: Yeah, the guy's wife sees you.
WW/LJ: Dammit! Well, guess I gotta go.
GRUNION: I hope she diversifies her retirement accounts....
