"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

I am She-Ra, Hear Me Roar!

What happens when you drop a light saber right near this...

Its time to call She-Ra...or mom's secret identity. Once She-Ra discovered that those vertical things on either end of the drain cover were handles, she wrestled the drain cover/metal curb piece off...one end at a time. Did you know those suckers weigh over 100 pounds?

With the top off, we were able to locate the light saber (behind the pipe on the left) and Gabe then decided the Pirates of the Caribbean flashlight needed to keep it company (center front).

I didn't need the ladder climbing down but it was great to balance with.

The light saber was quickly recovered...

and turned this sadsack into this happy kid...

ROOOOOAAAAR! I dig Superwoman, but I think that She-Ra is my all-time favorite female superhero. As a kid, I even had She-Ra and her Crystal Castle. Whenever you opened it, the She-Ra theme song would chime. For some reason, whenever the lights in my bedroom were turned on it would start singing.

Did you see the story somewhere on my blog of the time I whooped this bully's ass with my pink She-Ra lunchbox? I felt her power the same way you did today to get that light saber. :)
