Mr. Incredible Goes to the Doctor

A couple years ago, we received a Mr. Incredible costume along with some other hand-me-downs. Liliana tried it on once, but she was too big for it. Emmett wore it a few times, but outgrew it quickly as well. Then it sat in our dress up bin, largely untouched, for the bulk of the time we've had it... until recently. Edison pulled it out a few months ago and put it on. He became a big fan of the costume, although at that point he had never seen the movie. He would pair the costume with his green monster slippers and we'd call him the Increda-monster. He'd pair it with tap shoes and we'd call him the Increda-tapper. Today he was wearing the costume and didn't want to take it off when it was time to go to his Dr appointment. He simply added some red rain boots, informed me he was "all red," and got in the car. In the elevator at the doctor's office, a woman asked, "Are you Mr. Incredible?"
"No," Edison replied, "This is an Incredible costume." As if he thought she really believed him to be Mr. Incredible, and he needed to set the record straight so she wouldn't run off and tell people she had just met the real Mr. Incredible. She chuckled and I said, "Yes, it IS an incredible costume!"
