  88. Theo W

    I'd shower you with a million kisses…but then I'd smear the facepaint and, perhaps, ruin a perfectly good sweatshirt. So I'm just gonna rub your head like I do Sammy, our cat.

  89. Christie

    Darn it. I told the make up artist that I wanted to be super man, the man who has the powers to fly. Now look at me, she made me out to be spider man. The man who has webs coming out of his writs. What kind of super powers is that?

  90. James

    I just get in my elevator one day: there is Spider-Man. I’m like, ‘Well, you’ve gotten a little lazy, haven’t you? Remember the old days when you’d take the side of the building?’
