I Ramble Sometimes...8


My thoughts went back to a time in my life when I was more than just Paul. It was a time when the mysteries of the world were so simply solved in a secret that only my family knew. A mild mannered child on the outside, but under his clothes….


The joy of UNDEROOS.

Ah yes the underwear that made every child a hero. Never had such blatant display of undergarments been achieved. I was Auqaman, swimming around the house in my green and orange. I controlled water and the guppies were my willing servants.

My sister was wonderwoman, my brother the oh so predictable superman, but I…was king of the seas. Of course it quickly became various ways of throwing water on people, but still I loved my underoos.

Secretly I reveled in the knowledge of my secret. Going to school knowing that my secret was kept safe under my “normal” clothing. I still remember the knowing smile I would wear and the glances at the class fishtank. At any moment I could have that goldfish attack any evil doer.

The funny thing was the success and over abundance of these powerful garments of heroes. I quickly discovered that there were many heroes in my class. This of course led to an amazing amount of underwear displays in and out of classrooms.

As children we have no barriers, no preconceived notions of modesty. All we know is we are wearing something cool, and once everyone knows it…well then the school yard fun begins. The slide becomes the justice legue headquarters and several supermen protect it. The wonder women are flying their invisible jets, batmen are playfighting by the swings…but only one Master of the seas stands tall on top of the slide…I was Aquaman!!

Sorry for the backflash, but I miss my underoos sometimes…I will let you in on a secret though…I am still aquaman…GUPPIES ATTACK!!

Boy I ramble….LOL.
