Will you marry Spiderman?
Have you seen Spiderman-2? Did you like it? Well I did.
Not that I was really keen on the Doc Ock theme - but I ogled at Toby Maguire.
In that tattered malfunctioning Spidey costume - the guy looked just great.
What do you think?
But then that is that. Nothing more nothing less. At least I did not react to Spiderman-2 like my friend Smita did after watching the film. As if it's not queer enough that we sat in the midst of school kids to watch the chick flick- Smita went totally head over heels for Spidey and worse- jealous of Mary Jane!
Well I do know it girls - we could always do with a few good-looking larger than life male acquaintances - but can you imagine spending your life with the guy who has been doomed or blessed to save the world in the guise of an oversized insect?
God - the very thought runs a shiver down my spine. So when my well-past-teenage-friend gasped 'lucky Mary Jane!' I narrowed my eyes and quizzed her ruthlessly -
So Smita - given a chance...would you marry Spiderman?
You can guess what she said.
But would I?
No way!Now don't misunderstand me - how can I underestimate the virtues of doing-good? I am not out to judge Spidey or his vocation. But Smita's reaction makes my thoughts run deep.
Spiderman or Superman - girls will be girls.
Call them suckers for romance, seekers of spotlight or whatever else you want...but when it comes to the dame's heart- the appeal of the dangerous man dies hard!
And that, dear all, is the cause of an epidemic of heartbreaks.
