May 3. Day 123. Does what ever a spider can

It wouldn't take much to get caught in Matt's web.
The totally out there young man in the Spider Man suit had clocked off duty for the afternoon when he hit South Bank on his skateboard. But he was still captivating the crowds as he weaved his way through the grand arbour on the way to a watering hole for a Friday afternoon drink.
"Why the Spider Man suit?" I asked in a way that was somewhat presumptuous given we hadn't even been introduced.
He told me he had just come from work where his job was to get children interested in the rock climbing.
It would seem that someone with his attitude would be a super hero for getting children involved in an active lifestyle. I reckon he earned that Friday afternoon drink.
