Walking with Superman: Day 346
Lois Lane is accompanying her hard-traveling husband as they walk along the Enchanted Highway, north of Regent, North Dakota. The attraction is home to a unique collection of scrap-metal structures, said to be the largest in the world, depicting everything from nature scenes to former President Teddy Roosevelt. And about halfway down the road, between some enormous pheasants and the original Rough Rider, stood an eccentric little shop. The Kents stop inside, browsing its dusty collection of knick-knacks and tchotchkes and chatting with the friendly (if ancient) clerk, while Clark tries to shake the funny tingling sensation and buzzing in his head that seemed to start when he stepped inside. But when the curious curios begin to change the couple--and reality around them--in bizarre ways, it becomes clear that this is no normal shop, and the shopkeeper's smile may hide a more insidious intent!
