December 2003: Pen and Colored Pencils.

Explanation: Ivy and Ben play shock tag–that is, trying to zap each other with tiny static shocks. Apparently this is one of Ben’s favorite games, and he jokingly claimed that electric-shocking people was a special power of his before teaching Ivy how to do it.
IVY TRIVIA: Being that Ben is related to Ivy, it only stands to reason that he’d wonder why she was the one who got special powers. Though he doesn’t mention it to her (except once in the form of a joke), he’s rather disturbed that he got the short end of the stick, and has begun to firmly believe that he has a hidden super power. Discovering it is the problem.
