Okay so I'm watching #AvengersEndgame for the first time and I've already had to pause cause my anxiety is through the roof.

Where is his baby girl? She just went to get the arrow.
Oh my gosh. Where's the kid? That would break me.
Should I have watched that other Avengers film first?

So here's the backstory - It's 2004, I'm working as DComms in the PMO and my friend @susan_allan is Books Editor at @OttawaCitizen when a Xmas book by Stan Lee crosses her desk. Knowing my love of his comics, she asks if I'd do the book review....
I melt with excitement. After a torturous number of interactions with the Ethics Counsellors I get the green light (as a public office holder I couldn't accept payment but neither could I do it for free because that would constitute a benefit, I ended up donating it to charity)
So the Citizen plugs me - from my desk in the PMO - into the queue of book reviewers. Basically, I call into a 1800 # and wait for him to finish interview 773, come onto the line so I can be 774. It's like that scene in Notting Hill w/out Julia Roberts or Horse jokes

Stan Lee gave us more than co-creations X-Men, Iron Man, Hulk, Fantastic Four & Spider-Man. He gave us creeds to live by. Principles to emulate. Villains (and racism) to fight. He gave me vital cornerstones of my belief system. My sense of responsibility.
He helped give me a sense of hope. Why? Because I could use all his lessons in real life. That’s why his stories were so powerful. It wasn’t the super powers (sometimes it was). But as I got older, Stan Lee...
gave me real world applications for all those values. And unlike politicians, corporations, advertising or anything else, those lessons were GOOD. For the sake of good. Read these now. They were written as way back as 1965. #RIPStanLee
