At a department meeting today, Supergirl was in typical form. She was going a mile a minute but making a salient point, as she usually does while sucking in all the oxygen in the room. Someone we don't work with interrupted her mid-word by bursting out laughing: "Are you always like this? I don't know how Red does it! I think you'd annoy the hell out of me!"
It came off even harsher than it did in print. Supergirl's face fell. And I surprised myself by immediately and dead-seriously responding, "Hey, back off my wife."
