(My 14-year-old sister walks in while I am looking up ‘Iron Man 3’ images online.)

Sister: “What are you looking at?”

Me: “Poster for the new Iron Man movie.”

Sister: “There’s another one?”

Me: “Yup.”

Sister: “Oh, my God! Is that Gwyneth Paltrow?! Is she, like, his wife?”

Me: “No, she’s his girlfriend in this movie.”

Sister: “So, what’s her superpower? Is that her costume?!”

(My sister points at a female Iron Man Halloween costume on the page.)

Sister: “They’re like twins!”

Me: “Please just stop.”

Sister: “So, is the Joker the bad guy again?”

Me: “No. That’s Batman. Go away.”

Sister: “Is Superman gonna show up and help him? They did that in The Avengers, right?”

Me: “What the… No. Just, stop. Please.”

Sister: “I hope they make the movies into a book. I’d read it.”
