Hey, I’m gonna get you too

The ginormous monster crawls slowly across the great expanse, throwing aside cars, trucks and animals as it lays a path of destruction never before seen in this area.

Suddenly, from out of the blue Superman comes flying in to save the day! He attacks the monster with a vicious body blow and sends the monster reeling. The monster soon recovers, however, and, loudly declaring himself a Tickling Monster, he rushes in to finger the midsection of our mighty hero.

It is a little-known fact that Kryptonite isn’t the only weakness for Superman. A good tummy tickling will also bring the mighty hero down. As Superman struggles to overcome the Tickling Monster, he screams out for help. “Help me, Supergirl!” he yells.

Suddenly, from out of the blue, Supergirl arrives and jumps on the Monster’s back. The Monster, momentarily distracted, allows Superman to escape. He turns to look for Supergirl but she is no where to be found. Instead, he finds himself facing the magic wand of a fairy princess. “I’m a Fairy Princess and I’m gonna get you, Monster!” she yells.

The Monster, not knowing the full powers of a Fairy Princess retreats to formulate a plan. However, this gives the eclectic duo a chance to team up and they both come at the Monster. The Fairy Princess points her starry wand at him and fires a magical blast. Superman, on the other hand, has picked up a magical apple and points it a the Monster and shoots him with magic apple seeds.

At this moment, The Monster looks down and notices he’s changed. He’s no longer a ginormous monster, he’s a Daddy. The magic from the Fairy Princess must have changed him because suddenly the Fairy Princess is grabbing his hand and shouting, “C’mon Daddy! We have to run from The Monster! We need these!” She says, handing him a Magna Doodle and grabbing one for herself as they race from the room with Superman in hot pursuit.

They rush to the den and quickly hide behind the curtains so the Monster can’t see them. All of their loud whispering, however, must have given away their location as the Fairy Princess suddenly shrieks and, grabbing Daddy’s hand, runs back the other way into the kitchen. She quickly opens the pantry door and shoves herself and Daddy inside before closing the door. There they stand, surrounded by canned goods and boxes of cereal as they breathe heavily in the confined space.

Suddenly, the door flies open and Superman is there, toilet brush in hand, to announce that he has driven away the Monster – apparently by flushing it down the toilet. And with that, Daddy announces that since the Monster has been vanquished that he will take the toilet brush and return it to its proper location. He thanks the Fairy Princess and Superman for their hard work in battling the Monster and saving their Daddy.

With that, Superman and the Fairy Princess go off to play with those cars, trucks and animals that the Monster once tossed aside before being foiled by their cunning teamwork, while Daddy goes and rests.

After all, transforming from Daddy to Monster and back to Daddy is tiring work.

The title of this post is from an 80′s song. Can you name it?

  4. Good work daddy/monster. Perhaps next time you will get to be a fairy princess too.
