NaNoWriMo has inspired me to write something every day. This is little piece is yesterday’s effort.

This morning, as I walked through City Cross on my way to work, Superman swept past me, a giant “S” emblazoned on his chest, cape swishing behind him.

He wished me a lovely day.

Superman was slight, and his eyes were crossed, and his jeans were slightly too big for him. His walk was ungainly and his smile was crooked. But his “Have a lovely day” ushered the rejoinder from me: “You too, lovely”.

And as I turned to look at him as he hurried towards Gawler Place, I grinned.

Superman had just made my day.
