I almost forgot about Free Comic Book Day because Ash
didn’t mark it on the calendar. Ash and I were out of town, and he had to stop
at the comic book store. While we were there he spent about a fruitless hour
looking for one specific comic. The man working at the store asked us if we’d be
back next week, and I stupidly ask, “Why? What’s next week?” He said was Free
Comic Book Day and did a little jig. He said that there were going to be Storm
Troopers this year. Oh yeah, that’s going to make me want to drive a couple
hours for that particular store’s festivities!
Anyway, consider yourselves warned! Free Comic Book Day
is Saturday, May 5th.
Ash’s mother bought him superhero glasses, which he
adores. The Green Lantern cup is his holy grail. Apparently Ash doesn’t trust
me with his glasses and said I’m only allowed to use the Wonder Woman cup. I
think that that’s because he knows that I don’t want to use it and I’ll leave
his precious dishes alone! (Guests get use the Bat-Glass at least, but that
one’s off-limits for me too!)
For a man who can’t keep track of his wedding ring, Ash certainly has a lot of plastic toy superhero rings! In addition to his Green and various other color Lantern rings, his Flash ring, he also has Legion Flight Rings. Does it help him fly? No. Is he in the Legion? Perhaps. He can be Plastic Accessories Lad.
