#HAWMC Day 5: “Superpower Day. It’s a bird, it’s a plane it’s….you! If you had a superpower – what would it be? How would you use it?”
I *am* a Super.
I can pop pills at the speed of light.
I can move as fast as a thundering herd of turtles.
I. AM. THE.
If I could pretend to actually *have* a superpower…I *thought* I’d want to be able to hear people’s thoughts.
Then I thought about to what extent I drive myself crazy thinking someone’s Facebook status HAS to be about me…It wouldn’t work so well.
Then I thought about the ability to turn invisible*.
Then I laughed…and I laughed…and I laughed…
*referring to chronic illnesses as “Invisible Illnesses”
Then I thought about being super strong…like, made of metal or something.
Then I remembered how many blood tests I need and that watching the needles break as they hit my skin might, in fact, be counterproductive.
Then I thought about being this, like, uber-empath.
Dude, I feel like shit on a GOOD day…why on earth would I risk feeling like OTHER people’s shitty moods?
Then I thought about being able to fly.
Then I promptly thought about my inability to stay on my damned feet on a good day…with my luck, or by the Cosmos…I’d fly myself into a wall.
Worse still, someone’s backyard.
Filled with dog poop.
It’s Spring thaw, after all.
Huhn. This is a conundrum. What would be a really good super power to have?
Well, there really is only one power that’s super, isn’t there??
