Six Sentence Sunday, 14 October 2012 (Annie Brown and the Superhero Blues)

Her parents were definitely old-school, what with naming their children after angels and Greek gods, and so were their old school-friends the Jacksons: really, Raphael Perseus and Artemis Anael. A.

  1. Fun stuff, thanks for sharing!

    I think there’s a typo in your sixsunday.com link this week; maybe they’ll be able to change it if you ask!

  2. Vivien Dean says:

    It’s hard enough being a teenager with demanding parents if you don’t have superpowers. I can just imagine what these guys are going through!

  3. Sue says:

    parents will always worry overy their children

  4. And children will always be sure their parents know nothing! (I got caught in the bad link, too.)

  5. Elin Gregory says:

    Naming kids – fraught with guilt. And even more edgy for the parents of superheroes. 🙂 fun six.

  6. Ryan Derham says:

    Fun six! Superhero kids — one can never tell how they’ll turn out. 😉
