Will the real Wonder Woman stand up?

July 13, 2002

the resemblance is striking, no?

this morning, i rescued wonder woman from a yard sale. she was trapped in a mattel box on a dusty shelf in a dirty yard, and i had to take her home with me. it seemed a funny twist of fate as just last week i’d been reminiscing about my stint as a superhero. my parents refused to buy me wonder woman underoos, so my big brothers helped put together The Outfit, complete with construction paper head- and wrist-bands, a yellow yarn lasso and pink halter top. alas, i had no boots or cape, but that didn’t stop me from riding around in my big wheel, battling evil in my neighborhood.
