Alice was recently telling me about a Batman book she read at daycare. Her description of the plot was fuzzy, as one might expect of a story recounted from the perspective of a four-year-old. There was conflict, then a person in distress, then…
Alice: Then he, um, saves the day, I think? In a battle. That’s how he saves the day: in a battle.
The Mama: Hopefully no one gets hurt, right? Hopefully he can save the day without anyone getting hurt?
Alice: Superheroes never get hurt.
Hmm. Never? I think I know which career goal to steer The Kidling toward.
