Adventures in Babysitting

Having dinner with N, four years old:

N: Did you know? I'm Spiderman.

Me: You are? Right now?

N: No, only at night.

Me: What's your favorite thing about being Spiderman?

N: That I can throw webs really far. Did you know that I also have another name?

Me: What's that?

N: Peter Parker (Editor's Note: Sounds like "Petah Parkah")

Me: Wow, that's a lot to keep up with. Do you have a girlfriend?

N: Yes. Her name is Mary Jane.

Me: Does she know you're Spiderman?

N: No. I only play with her during the day.

Me: Do you know any other super heros?

N: Yeah, Batman lives next door.

Me: So this is the safest street in town.

N: Yep. Do you know what the yuckiest bug ever is? A fly. It tastes with its feet.
