I'm no sidekick

If I had super-powers...

I would want to be able to write legibly with both hands simultaneously.  Think about it:  That would mean that the two hemispheres of my brain could work independently and simultaneously.  I could read 2different things at the same time and comprehend it.  I could do the work of two people.  That would be pretty awesome.

I would have telekinesis, so that I could fold and put away all of the laundry with a few pointed thoughts.  I already send plenty of those thoughts in the direction of my laundry basket each day, so it wouldn't be any more effort than I already exert.

I would have some super-power or another that caused my metabolism to kick into high gear.  Super speed, super strength, it wouldn't matter... as long as I could eat as much chocolate lava cake as I want.

I would be able to re-energize in seconds, thus freeing up an additional 8 hours in each day for productivity.  I tried using caffeine to this end in college, and would stay up for up to 52 hours straight at a time.  It was a flawed system, hence the need for super-powers.

I would be the best darn mediator ever.  I would be able to calm people down so well, you'd start calling me Xanax.

My last super-power would be to convince ALL of you to join Michelle's and my party tomorrow might at 7:30! I'm wearing a totally awesome Christmas sweater, and let's face it... you really don't want to miss out on that.  Just admit it in the comments.  You don't want to miss it, and therefore, you will join in the fun.

If you could have any super-powers, what would yours be???


  1. Such a great post! I seriously need to start thinking about what I would want my super hero powers to be. Hopefully I can join in tomorrow night! What book are you reading for book club this month??

  2. My super power would be flying :)
    Or maybe reading minds, but only when I want to (like Professor X) so I could turn it on and off.

  3. C-Men - that made me giggle. Kind of a lot.

    I'd want to have telekinesis, teleportation, and breathing under water. Maybe mind reading, but I'm pretty sure I never want to know what my boss is thinking.

    Again, I'm sad I can't make the party tomorrow. =( No google/chat for me.

  4. I will also take a metabolism that kicks into high gear...I have been eating sugar lately like it's my job! As well as the power to teleport anywhere :) it would make traveling so easy, and even commuting to work!

  5. I'd love to have a super-metabolism power. Also, if I could read minds...maybe not everyone's minds, just the people who I'm talking to so that I could take manipulation out of the picture. I hate being manipulated or lied to.

  6. my super power would be just to live in Harry Potter world. and also the metabolism thing. and I want to join the party tomorrow, but I have bridesmaid duties to attend to. :(

  7. I would love to be able to join the party, but I think the time difference has made me miss it!

    I would teleport. In a blink of an eye be anywhere in the world that I wanted to be.


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
