Where it came from, no one knew, but the monster had already destroyed half the town and was threatening to destroy the other half!
The call went out for a hero. Fortunately I was on the other line at the time, and I have no call waiting.
There came a knock at the door.
"Perry, open up, we need you! No one else can stop the monster!"
"I've got the flu," I called back. "And I broke my knee. Plus I'm not home."
The townsfolk battered down the door. "Perry, you're our only hope.''
"But why me?! I passed out during Shrek!"
"Because, Perry, you're secretly Superman! Did you forget?"
"Shit, you're right!" I said, dropping trou to reveal the familiar red underpants underneath.
One thing that sure isn't super about me is my memory.
Up, up, and away! That's where most people usually want me to be anyway, so this week I can fully oblige right after I make short work of the monster in my adventurous tale for the Friday Fictioneers based on the picture prompt above.
You won't need X-ray Vision to enjoy the contributions of the other Fictioneers. All you need to do is click on the up, up,and away which is up, up and above to go up,up,and away to read as many as you want. Whew, even Superman gets tired!
I hope you don't need any saving in the week ahead because I'll be in the Fortress of Solitude watching Shrek. I think maybe I can finally get through it now ....
