But I won't cry. I don't want to.

It’s my birthday!

Since I’m good at pretending, I’m going to make believe that I actually wrote this post on my birthday, too, and beg off writing one. Instead, if you’d like you can
leave a comment that says what superpower you’d like to have and why.
I had a post vaguely similar to this back in P’mouth, but I want to play again. My superpower would be telepathy, not because I want to make illusions or have mind control or hear other people’s thoughts, but so I could immediately transmit the thing I’m trying to say into someone else’s mind and there’d be nothing lost in translation (from Frozicarese to any other language of the world).

Happy Birthday!!!

In Soviet Russia, birthday celebrate YOU.

I want to be able to fly.

Justin said...

But I need your super power more than you do!

also: I'd like my super to be... the TARDIS. Does that count as a super power? I vote yes.

I, too, would like to fly. But then I start thinking about how cold and potentially wet and tired and hungry I'd get flying anywhere and I decide that planes are ok, too.

I think, in lieu of getting too specific and asking for warm, dry, effortless, and catered flight, perhaps the ability to stop time might be good. That way, we can pause, go have wonderful adventures, and then be home in time for tea!

I have another super power I want - teletransport

Andrew said...

All great choices! I would also like to have teletransport, and I don't even have to be walking for three...

And Justin: I think you'd get trapped by the genie. Wishing for the TARDIS isn't wishing for the knowledge of how to USE the TARDIS...and then you'd get trapped with a stupid blue box in your living room.

(Not that anyone would be against this. I think you and Stacey could find great use of the additional space for all of your book- and prisoner-storing needs. And/or holing up against the zombie invasion of earth.

You're gonna give me more bad dreams!!! Although, having the Tardis would help me feel calmer once I heard the first groan. ;)
