I guess in the 1950s, after she grew up a bit, Mary Batson got a job at an NYC insurance company and was in the running for Miss Subways. Don't know if she won, but she would have been a shoe-in if she SHAZAM-ed into her alter ego!

Ah, per the picture, it's Mary Baston, not Batson. But nice try. <grin>

As I commented before that I have dyslexic. Do you know how many times I had to read and re-read the differences on that one. OMG!! LOL.

Ah well, it's happened to me before. Apparently many lefties are prone to dyslexia.

Fun to still dream though! All she would need to say in this case would be "Shzaam!"

That was my thought behind "nice try". I liked the sentiment and the thought, but the spelling jumped out at me.

I'm a hard right-handed and not dyslexic.

I remember an interesting puzzle I saw some number of years ago. It was a paragraph or two of a story that was supposedly interesting to read, but nearly every word was dramatically misspelled and many words missing. The trick was to see if you could quickly read it and understand the story.

Supposedly, if you turned off your internal spell checker and just flowed let your eyes flow across the words, it was completely comprehensible. Yet if you looked at it critically or closely, one sentence at a time, it looked like gibberish.

I found it very, very hard to scan like that, but come people had no trouble understanding it at all.

My brain's wired weird... probably why I wound up in computers.

I have seen the screwed up stories like what you are talking about. I had no problem reading it. My friend who thought she was being all cool and stuff was WTF.

I'm also in computers, but on the system side of the house. I can design/install large systems, but make me proof read something and I'm screwed.

I have a couple stories in my head, but can never find time to write them down. Maybe one day I'll get around to it.

I hope you do get the time. It's always fun to read the stories in each other's heads. .
