How are you all? Good? Awesome? Great, me too. As I’ve been mentioning on our social sites all week, we’re welcoming you all to share in the month of ‘AWESOMEGUST.’ It’s not the best play on words but hopefully the sentiment of having an awesome month will not be lost on you all! I always think September is a weird month, a transitional one, where things happen. Maybe it’s because school always started then. Who knows. I’m sounding a bit like the nostalgic hippy that I’ve secretly always wanted to be. Anyway, where were we? Awesomegust! This month I’m going to make sure that we have a party month before we hit boring old September. Are you game?
Well now that I’ve got your attention, let’s have a competition. On Wednesday, I attempted to take my girlfriend to see the new Batman film. We like a date night once in a while. Awww. Anyway, we hadn’t thought about the fact that it was 2 for 1 night, summer holidays and everyone and their cousin had decided the cinema was to be their home for the night. As I stood there in the queue whilst excited teenagers jumped about, got off with each other and hid popcorn in their noses, I thought to myself – ‘I wish I had a superpower to make all these twerps disappear. Not die or anything, just disappear and make them go somewhere else. Like Tanzania.’ That’s where Geography Man was born. Sod Batman. If I was Geography Man, I could zap people to any part of the world and I’d know all the capital cities (Ulan Bator is Mongolia’s) just because I was super clever. By day, I’d be a Geography teacher, dressed in tweed and talking about tributaries and igneous rock formations.
As you can see, I think about things WAY too much. The comp is this! Tweet us what superhero you’d like to be. Nothing perverted please. Give us your superhero names, powers and any details you’d like to add. Use the #superheroes tag. The winner will get a £50 voucher and we’ll do a bunch of runners-up prizes. Make them funny, make them serious, have some fun! Winners announced Monday night.
Thank you all, and sorry for the waffle!
Here I am as Geography Man. Or maybe it’s just a photo I stole off the internet.
If I was a cool Superhero, I’d nonchalantly let The Joker kickflip over me.
