One day I called him ‘Spiderman’ because of his new shoes.
He and I giggled, and the other adults in the room were amazed.
I’m not sure why, but we seemed to click.
Months later we met again and he said my name.
And all the other adults in the room were amazed.
We didn’t really know each other.
Just for those few short moments.
But sometimes that’s all it takes to make an impression.
This week all the adults in the room are sad.
We won’t hear that giggle again.
RIP ‘The Amazing Spiderman’
