A Late Chat Production
Your seven-year-old son, Kent, is a little daredevil and has a vivid imagination. He seems fearless and will try any sort of stunt. This has earned him more than one trip over your knee.
Kent loves to pretend to be Superman. You bought him a Superman costume and he loves to wear it and let his imagination run wild. Kent decided if he wore his cape that he was certain he could fly. There is a wooded area behind your property and Kent plays back there. One day he decided to climb a tree and he managed to jump from tree to tree (fly) by using the branches of the closely growing trees. He was wearing his Superman cape and so Kent is certain that is what helped him to "fly." You came back to the wooded area and found Kent "flying" and saw it was really a dangerous thing to do, especially for a seven-year-old. You called Kent down and expressly told him no more flying. Kent said it would be OK because he had his cape. You were firm and told Kent no more flying.
Today Kent is late coming in. You assume he has lost track of time and go back to the wooded area to get him. You hear Kent crying and calling for help. You look up and he is all wrapped up and tangled in the branches of a tree. He can't get down or loose and he can't get his cape off. He is unharmed but is scared. The more he tries to free himself the more tangled he becomes. Kent sees you and asks you to help him. He says, "I was flying but my cape stopped working." You pluck your son, costume and all, out of the tree and look him over. Remarkably, he (and his costume) are fine.
Will he receive a superhero's welcome when you get him in the house, or, something else?
Silly, defective cape.
