So, I decided to join in the writing prompt from a really popular - and interesting - blog network called "Trash Can Bloggers."
The writing prompt this week -
If you could have any super power, what would it be?
Okay, this is serious business, people. I've often thought about this, and here's how I break it down -
I wouldn't want read people's minds.
Seriously, if you are on Facebook or Twitter, you read people's minds enough. Can you imagine all the crowded thought traffic that would come through if you read people's minds?
I wouldn't want to travel with the speed of light.
I mean, don't we all know the expression, "It's not where you go, it's how you get there?" Or something like that. Well, one of my favorite ways to travel is lengthy road trips, so you can thoroughly take in scenery and enjoy every step of the way. So, sorry Superman (and Superwoman), I like to take my time.
I wouldn't want super strength.
This is a vanity thing. I'm already pretty tall for a female, the last thing I need is to be stronger than most men too.
I might consider the superior climbing ability thing.
While you'd never find going rock climbing, I think it might kind of cool to be able to swing between sky high buildings with the greatest of ease or what not. But then again, I do have a slight fear of falling so maybe this isn't a good idea.
I might consider the ability to travel through time.
I think this would be so cool to be able to go back through time and witness pretty awesome historical events. But then again, if the movie The Butterfly Effect taught us, it may not be a good idea. I mean, I wouldn't want to go back and step on an ant and come back to the present realizing we all live on the moon or something. Although...
So, if you could have any super power, what would yours be?
