Good morning all! It’s the day after Valentine’s Day in ExpressIRSForms, and love is still in the air. At least, it still is for everyone’s favorite e-filing superhero, Ace.
Little has been said about Ace’s personal life since he came to ExpressIRSForms, but a little birdie just told us that last night Ace asked his very special someone that very special question: “Do you want to order pizza or Chinese?” And then later over a delicious dinner of lo mein and wantons, Ace asked that other special question:
Delighted to hear an ecstatic Yes!, Ace scooped up his new fiancée in his arms and promised they’d go away for the week together, just as soon as he made sure the citizens of ExpressIRSForms would be okay without him for so long.
Which brings us back to this morning: Ace is hurrying around the city, realizing just how much he’s needed in ExpressIRSForms and beginning to wonder about the hasty promise he made.
Ace knows he’ll superhero better once he’s had time to get away and relax, but how can he just leave the citizens behind? Surely there must be some compromise, and surely he can get “superhero” to catch on as a verb! And so with renewed determination, Ace was able to come up with a plan.
“You've gotta help me,” Ace continues. “See, I proposed last night and-”
“You proposed?!” Doc exclaims. “Well, I presume the answer was yes?”
“You do know as much as me!” Ace replied. “So, anyway we want to go away together for a week or so to celebrate, but the people of ExpressIRSForms need me! It’s becoming clearer and clearer that I can’t just leave them for a week.”
“Say no more, Ace. I’ll take over for you while you’re gone, and I’ll alert your sidekicks to be on high alert for any Confusion-induced mayhem.”
“Thanks, Doc. I really owe ya one.”
“I’m sure I’ll think of something you can do for me when you get back. Hmm…the bullet-proof bathrobe is almost ready for human testing…Or, I suppose, super-human testing,” Doc says with a wink.
“Bullet-proof bathrobe, huh?”
“What, you expect me to wear an uncomfortable vest all the time? ’Sides, vests can’t protect your arms and legs!”
Ace chuckles. “Well, I’d better get going. Alex is waiting in the car outside.”
Walking outside, Ace smiles as he sees his new fiancée (he just loves that word!) waiting in the driver’s seat. “Ready?” he asks.
“Ready!” Alex replies. “But are you sure you’re okay leaving the citizens with Doc?”
