Why I’ve written to Santa for a Spider-Man costume…

Here’s my latest piece for Eastern Daily Press, all about my son’s passion for Spider-Man.

Have a read.

“My son’s superhero of choice is Spider-Man. I’d like to say that the obsession with blue and red spandex-clad fella is driving me up the wall, but it’s my son who’s doing the climbing in our house. Watching him play, I keep being reminded of the old Spider-Man joke about the hero who only struggles with one thing – getting out of the bath. He’ll stand by a wall, palms flat against the brick, then attempt to climb vertically. Nothing happens. Yet Sam doesn’t seem to notice that he’s getting nowhere fast – much like a house spider stuck by a plug hole. As I watch him, I can’t help feeling amused and a little bit jealous. The passion and enthusiasm that possesses him during this period of Spider-mania is beyond anything most of us experience in our adult existence.”
