Looking For A New Side Hustle

I’M HANGING UP MY SHORT CAPE

Packing My Spandex Unitard On Mothballs …

Along With My Utility Belt.  Ankle-High Boots.  And, Do-Rag.

“Retiring, Alas … Putting This Super Hero Nonsense To Bed.”

I Know When I’m Done.

I OWN 3 SUPER SHITTY POWERS

Uno: A Wicked Cha-Cha Slide … Take It Back, Y’all … Single Hop, Now!

Dos: Puppeteer Savant.

Tres: Human Piñata.

None Of Them Are Much Good These Days.  At Least, The Piñata Day Gig Nearly Pays The Bills.

STICKMAN

I Thought Marvel Or DC Comics Would’ve Made A Pitch For The Publishing Rights …  

Perhaps, It Was The Generic Name.  And, The Periwinkle-On-Fuchsia Color Scheme Didn’t Help With Branding.  I Should’ve Listened To The Focus Group I Hired Back in ’97.  When I Interrupted A Gaggle Of Snotty-Nosed 11 Year-Old’s Playing Street Hockey:

“Ya, Ya … Ginger Bread Man.”

They Laughed.  As They Pelted My Car With Snowballs.  Maybe I’ll Reconsider.
