My Superhero Powers

I wonder a lot what I would be if I was a superhero. What would my superhero power be? I also wonder what I would I (because that’s the most important piece of information). If I had my choice, I would have to choose either super speed, super intelligence, or the ability to only sleep about an hour a day and be totally refreshed. If I had to choose one, I would choose the latter of them all. I can’t imagine the amount of work I would be able to get done, but I bet it would be a lot. With the business, the two jobs and the baby boy, it’s sometimes hard to find a moment to breathe, let alone sleep, but if I didn’t have to… If I could, I would do all three. The only problems I could see with the former two would be that I would get bored after a while if I had super speed and the ability to get everything done at an amazing pace. Plus, I would still have to wait the required amount of hours at both jobs, no matter if I was super fast at it or not. Then there’s super intelligence. That would be an ability that would have to be hidden for fear that I would be turned into a lab rat and studied. If I was superfast, people may think I’m on drugs, even if I didn’t sleep, but being super smart indicates that I haven’t fried those brain cells. Also, with the jobs I currently have, I think I would go out of my mind if I was any more intelligent than I already am.

Now, the what to wear: I sometimes wonder at the costumes that superheroes get into, and how they do so in such quick time. Corsets, for one thing, usually have about a million different hooks in them. and unless you have extremely nimble fingers along with that super speed, it would be rather difficult. Plus, I would think it’d be rather difficult to move, let alone breathe in that. Don’t even get me started on Spandex…

Ah well, I guess I’ll just have to happily settle on being my own kind of super hero: Me. That’s a superhero with no special powers except that of unfailing optimism and a one track mind when need be.
