March: What superhuman ability do you want?

The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

Jenna seems to be able to hear better because of the changes she has undergone. Is there one thing you wish you had superhuman abilities to do?

Unlimited patience! That's superhuman, right?

sweetmelissa818 said...

At least I think so!

Lorie Ann Grover said...

That is a superpower, Melissa!

I'm going to stick with flying. :~) Super Grover and all that.

sweetmelissa818 said...

Yes!! Super Grover! Super Grover is my husbands favorite Sesame Street character! And you would definitely be Super Grover!

I'd love to be able to stop time LOL...

Nina Berry said...

If I had three wishes they'd be:
1. Fly like Superman. 2. Be able to breathe underwater. 3. Be able to talk to animals.

Can I have all three?

marypearson said...

I could create 8 day weeks, and 4 day weekends whenever necessary

marypearson said...

okay, wait, changed my mind after reading Nina'a. I have always wanted to be able to fly, sans plane. It always happens in dreams, why not real life?

I have no idea, there are so many that would be awesome:

1. Flying
2. Being able to run REALLY fast
3. Invisibility
4. Umm, the power to teleport? (how fun would that be, if you can't sleep you could just teleport to the other side of the world if you wanted to)
5. Power to control fire, no clue why, I've just always thought that'd be a pretty cool power.

...I'll be here all day listing these, so how about the power to make up my mind? ;]

Melissa Walker said...

Yes! Teleporting! I want someone to get on that invention quickly!

Erin said...

I want to fly!

Little Willow said...

Telekinesis and telepathy.

Shelf Elf said...

Ah... pretty tempted by the "stopping time" idea. Love that. Think of all the books I could read.

Maybe time travel? I've always wanted to experience history (but being able to come back whenever I wanted would be a must).

I'm sure I'll think of others too.

Dia Calhoun said...

I'd love to be invisible because I could eavesdrop on the world and find so many stories, and because I could go any where any time, without worrying about danger.

JenFW said...

To not age so I have time to do all the things I want to do.

This question has been on my mind all weekend - every time I thought of one, my mind went in the direction of all the bad stuff that would go with it (apparently I'm a pessimist!). Invisibility...flying...patience...those are all great. Stopping time, so that more could be squeezed into a day. But wouldn't that make me more stressed? Maybe the ability to slow things down. Or the ability to think something into existence - which could seriously get one into trouble, if one wasn't careful, but would be really great for writing books, making art, making dinner...

Perhaps I overthink. ;)

Justina said...

The ability to cast a bubble of protection over people.

Shelf Elf said...

I think I already have a super power... is the ability to bake an awesome cake a super power? Not sure...

If not, I'd like to add the ability to do stuff with the snap of my fingers (a la I Dream of Jeannie). Bye bye toilet brushing and dog washing.

:)

Mind control of others might come in handy (to convince others to want to clean my house, my child to want to sleep peacefully in his crib, etc.). The ability to function without sleep was appealing at first, but I'd probably be bored to death. Flying is of course wonderfully freeing to think about.

Silvia said...

I would love to fly and be able to travel to diferent places and through times!
That'd definetly be very cool!

Polo.Pony said...

Hmmm, would being a part time mermaid count?

Molz614 said...

I would want something like a timeturner in harry potter so that I could get more stuff done if I were to go back in time...
