Born of Desperation she emerged to fight back the evils of a lack of costume. Frantic to find something to wear to a costume party that was not indecent, Penny struggled against the lack of creativity that consumed her mind. “I….must…..think…..of…..something!” she was heard to mutter as she staggered around her house searching through the children’s dress up and her clothes. Finally as she was looking through the toys she found the beginnings of an idea. It was a large piece of material that the children had confiscated from her stash. It was perfect! She cut a hole in the middle and put it on. She grabbed a gold ribbon to tie about her waist as a sash. “Hmmm,” she thought. “Maybe something to do with ancient Greece.” She found flip flops to slide on. Then she made a dash for her bathroom to look through the hair drawer. What did she find? An elastic with wispy ribbons flowing from it. She put her hair in an elastic bun, and went to work on her makeup. What started out innocently enough ended in a look to make her daughter stare. Trying desperately to do something fun and daring for the costume Penny had experimented with the darker shades of eye shadow, resulting in a scary look. She did not have time to wash it off and start over, they were already late. Out of desperation she decided to use the eyeshadow to make a superhero mask right on her face. That done, she scooped her family up with superhuman strength and swept them into the car.
And thus was born the superhero Desperation!!!!!
Stand for Something.
