Day 23: Superpower

I really couldn’t think of anything to write today, so I decided to resort to a cliched question: If I could choose a superpower, what would it be?

When I was a kid and my friends and I would play games, my character was a girl named Michelle and she could talk to animals. I think she had a pet dragon or something, but I don’t quite remember.

If I could have a superpower, I think I’d like to be able to talk to animals, but at the same time I wonder if it would get annoying after awhile. I mean, if I could talk to all animals then I could hear the ants talking under my feet and then I’d feel guilty if I killed one of them. Yikes, too much pressure!!!

Another superpower I’d like is shape shifting. I realize that it would be a very painful process, or at least at the beginning until my body got used to a certain form. The only problem I could foresee is if I turn into a dog would I innately be able to communicate with them or would it be something I have to learn?

There I go overthinking things again.

Now that’s my real superpower, overthinking. Perhaps I’d be better as a villain or an anti-hero rather than an actual hero. Would I want to be a hero though? Nope. I think I’d just like to be a “normal” human being that happens to have superpowers.

Now I think about Peter Parker’s uncle’s advice: “With great power comes great responsibility.” Oh great, that means that by having the power to shape shift (or talk to animals) that I’d be obligated to help.

Maybe I’ll stick to being a regular human being. ¬†Yeah…I think I will.

I know it’s cliche, but what superpower would you choose? Also, do you think that you’d be able to handle the responsibilities that will inevitably result from this superpower? Let me know.

Until next time, if great power means great responsibility then there better be great health insurance and a great dental plan to go along with it.

Writer in Need of a Job and Other “Tear-Jerking” Tales

I think I’m about to go crazy. I need a job. I’ve been contemplating taking a part-time job at Petsmart just so that I can have something to do. However, I did sign up on a website as a writing contractor so we’ll see what comes of that.

Yesterday I got my Heeler fixed and I have to keep her “quiet” for three days. That’s like keeping a mountain goat from climbing. Literally. My Heeler loves to climb. She jumped up on the back of our love seat simply because she could. She tried to climb up on my scrapbooking table. I have a crate for her, but I don’t want to keep her in it all the time, so what I’m doing is hanging out in my study and letting her roam around.

Half or Less Books just might be my new favorite bookstore. All the books are so affordable, pocket change even. I found four clearance books that totaled up to six dollars. My fiance got some Star Trek books (yes, I’m marrying a nerd and I’m proud of it!). All together he paid less than twelve dollars for all six books…not a bad haul. I will definitely visit there again. The only unfortunate part about the store is all of the bookshelves are made of Cedar. My mother and I are allergic to Cedar with my mom being almost deathly allergic. That means that I won’t be able to take my mom shopping there which makes me kind of sad because I’d like to show her that place.

Moving is is going well, albeit slow. I only have so much motivation…er energy to get the job done. Maybe if I had some really good music blaring through the house then I might be more inclined to do some more work. Until then, I’ll just waste time on facebook.

I think this really about sums up my last few days. I’m hoping that life becomes more exciting. My characters in my stories have more fun than I have. How fair is that? Maybe I should fictionalize myself and go on adventures. Okay, I admit it, I’ve done that before. I like to write stories where I’m doing a lot more exciting things. Of course a lot more exciting things simply means I’m not sitting at home on my computer playing Farmville 2 hoping that I hear an ambulance or police car or some other signs of life outside of the walls of the house.

Well I’m going to go write about something exciting. Maybe I’ll find an adventure in the laundry room.

Until next time…
