I was at the Geneva Farmers Market yesterday and an 8 year old boy spied my copper, lightning bolt pendant and immediately bee-lined over to it.
He wanted it and he wanted it bad. His mom agreed to buy the pendant, and there was no putting it in a bag for him. He ripped it out of the box and tried to pull it over his rather large head.
I laughed and commented, "Wait a second." Clasping it around his neck, I said, "This is a super hero necklace, you know."
He looked up and asked, "Does it give me super powers?"
"Absolutely, it does," I replied.
