Up, Up and Away!

Every time you step out the front door, you never know what bizzare things life will bring your way.

Was on my way to work yesterday morning.  Running a bit late, trying to take care of some tasks before the week ramps up.  Left the house a bit before 0700 and made the normal route down the main road heading across town.  Not more than 2 blocks from the house, as I pulled up to an intersection, off to the right on the side of a road, I spotted two bicyclists coming out of the neighborhood.  A man and woman riding together on two bikes headed east on the sidewalk.  Now, normally, this would not be enough to get more than a passing glance or even merit a blog entry, but today was a wee bit different.  What caught my eye (and I almost choke on my coffee) was the small detail that the guy was wearing a Superman costume.  Not your off-the-shelf, cheap Walmart costume.  Oh, no.  A full blown Superman costume with cape, tights, boots, and a big "S" on his chest.  And the woman was right behind him in a Supergirl costume complete with cape, skirt, and boots.  The only detractor was the bike helmet she was wearing.  That sight certainly kicked over my giggle box yesterday.  I had half a mind to turn around and go back to snap a cell phone shot but was running late.  Not every day you see the Man & Woman of Steel.

COOL!

Like meleah rebeccah, I'm also a bit curious. Some sort of kinky role play?? Hope they didn't have Kryptonite locks! (sorry)

So even the local superheroes are going green now and riding bikes instead of burning fuel!

Bicycles. Where were the jet packs? Bet that was a sight to see.
