not-so superpowers

with 4 comments

i remember one time i was having a conversation with some friends and someone asked the hypothetical question: “if you had any superpower, which one would you choose?”  we were all thinking for a minute, and one friend said, “the ability to swim.”  we all just looked at him, wondering if he knew what he just said and then we all cracked up.

so i’ve been thinking, what if we couldn’t choose the “cool” superpowers, but had to choose seeming ordinary ones?  no ability to fly or be superstrong or teleport (my personal favorite).  you know one that i thought was interesting that i wouldn’t mind having?  i wouldn’t mind being able to see smells.  whatchu talkin’ bout enoch?  yeah, i know, totally random.  but my brain thinks about these kinds of important issues.  i mean, wouldn’t being able to see smells be kinda useful?  you could avoid bad smells, take in all the good ones, you’d be able to tell the source of different smells.  yeah, i know sometimes it’s obvious, but you know those times when you’re sniffing around going, “what is that?”  well, now you’d know.  what about these?

the ability to tell the exact time – like a human watch.  i dunno, some people like to know the time at all parts of the day.  you could wake up at anytime and know what time it is.

the ability to remember minute details – billy didn’t say that… did he?  yes, yes he did.  i remember it perfectly.  he didn’t say you were fat, but he said “she has a muffin top.”

the ability to see on a microscopic scale – loose a contact?  loose a screw from you glasses?  no problem!

ok, so maybe they’re not that great.  but we got a good laugh from muffin top:

  3. This post reminds me of the Mystery Men. Like the ability to be invisible when naked and no one’s looking…

    I would like to have the uncanny ability to…

    -Dress and undress with the blink of an eye. (it would be useful in the morning when waking up and going to sleep)

    -See sounds… Like in the cartoons where music notes come from all music. Then it would be like I have perfect pitch! Maybe some people CAN see sounds…

    -The ability to pee toilet bowl cleanser. The toilet would never get dirty…

    -The ability to be instantly clean would be nice too…

    Hmmm… It seems that all my abilities promote laziness…
