Well! Today was a very big day. I got my sidekick! Her name is Beth Intentions and she’s a pixie. I was so afraid I was going to a troll or a talking dog or something, but Beth is awesome. She has a lisp, so we had a little trouble communicating at first. Then I remembered I took that silly one credit course in mind-reading and we were good after that.
Beth provides a certain charm to my natural bad-assery. I mean, I have no problem honing in on a sentence splicer and sentencing him to my wrath, but it’s kinda nice having a friendly sidekick to do a little damage control when I’m done! She also gives out lollipops.
I have to get up early tomorrow so Beth and I can try out new capes in high traffic! Sidekicks rock.

My first day as a real superhero! I used Dad’s mug for coffee this morning and I’m pretty sure the other supers were impressed. Dad signed it “Love Captain Captain” so everyone would know who I am. Maybe someday I’ll have the chutzpah to go by Grace of Syntax Captain. I think Japanese culture would put the Captain first though? Being a super hero is hard.
Anyway, Day One won. Ha! That’s the first wordplay I’ve used all day. Oh well! It was a good start to my super career. Granted, all I did today was rescue a kitten from a tree and fill out eight metric tons of paperwork, but I think I did it in style. At least until I got a flying ticket. I didn’t know it was illegal to pass bald eagles. Some sort of National Protection movement I guess?
Until tomorrow! Stay Super!
Grace of Syntax Captain
Hello blog world! My name is Grace of Syntax and I just graduated from Super Hero School, top of my class. My parents are pretty big deal super heroes so let’s just say Mom wasn’t that impressed. She just said, “Try flying across a stage in six inch heels…pregnant with a bomb.” I didn’t take it personally, because she was in the middle of nuclear disarmament of some small country and a little cranky. She is The Perfect Woman after all. She did bake me about a dozen cakes so I think secretly she’s really excited!
Daddy was super proud too and he even got me a new coffee mug to take to my new job on Monday. Lookin’ forward to being super!
As for me, I can’t wait to use my Super Diploma to help change the world. I did all the standard flying, petty crime electives, but my passion is grammar. Have you ever seen a split infinitive tear a civilian in half? It’s not pretty. I’m that superhero: ready to dot your I’s and cross your T’s so you don’t confuse continents with continence and end up…nevermind.
Until next time, be well and do good!
