It's funny how things come about.. particularly when you involve children.
I was having a wonderful conversation with my 5 year old niece yesterday, who has only recently come around to speaking with me over the phone.. She's only met me a couple of times, and the deep voice on the end of the receiver used to frighten her. Not anymore.. now she just prattles on and on and on. I love it. She's incredibly astute for her age, and hilarious. I was on speaker phone so my sister and the other kids could hear me and chime in from time to time. They must have recently been getting into super heroes, because she asked me what my super power would be, if I could have any one in the world. Off the top of my head I said X-Ray Vision.. And she cackled.. Why? The ubiquitous response.. I had to think fast.. So that I could look inside all the animals and people who were sick and see what's wrong with them so they could be fixed. In the background I heard my sister (what can only be described as) guffaw. Because she knew only too well for what purposes I would use my super vision. I'm guessing you do too.
But what would you good folk out there choose, if you could, as your super power? Do tell.
