BE A SUPER BOY? I WAS STUNG!
Anyone recall this blast from the past? I think it was one of the
few times I ever bought The HORNET, and it was mainly because
I foolishly believed that observance of this free gift's contents would
transform me into the Scottish equivalent of CLARK KENT's alter-
ego. I eagerly anticipated being the envy of my friends and the ob-
ject of rampant lust amongst the female populace of my town.
Thinking back now, there was no chance I'd ever be able to
swim farther - mainly because I can't swim! Run faster? Scratch
that one off the list as well. Jump higher? Nope! Box better? Only
if it's putting something in a box. Come to think of it, I may have a
claim against DCT for false advertising, as I was every bit as
much of a wimp at the 'after' stage as I was at the 'before'.
So I was never destined to be a 'Super Boy', but I was a real
'Boy Wonder'. People used to look at me and wonder if I was a
real boy! (Boom-boom! The old ones are the best!)
