David: Shifting Balance

“Hey, baby, do you like pina coladas?”

Without turning around, I grumbled, “Get away from me, you gold chain-wearing freak.” Then I looked.

“Oh crap,” I added, staring into the fur-lined cleavage of my supervisor. I shuddered involuntarily.

Mr. Johnson stared sternly down at me. “Now, Miss Jackson, that’s no way to earn a promotion.”

I couldn’t see any way around it. I needed this job. “I’m sorry, sir. Force of—wait, what?”

“What?” he repeated.

“My god, you did! You brought me to this conference to try to score with me. Are you really that much of a cliché?”

Jim: The Obvious Pun

“How about Power Woman?” asked Chloe. “Power Woman sounds good!”

Linda Danvers looked up from the sewing machine and wrinkled her nose. “That name stinks,” she said.

“Then what about Mighty Gal? That’s got a certain ring to it.”

Linda shook her head and resumed sewing. “That reminds me of pet food. Besides, I’ve already chosen a name.”

“Yeah,” Chloe sneered. “A copy-cat name. I think you need something more original.”

“At least people will recognize the colors,” Linda grinned. “You can’t beat red and blue for superhero clothing.” Then she sighed and went back to making her S cape.
