My super power

superhero-304713_640An ice breaker to get people talking to each other is to ask ‘What super power would you like to possess?’Answers that come back are usually something from the comic books:

  • To run faster than a speeding train,
  • To leap tall buildings at a single bound,
  • To be able to see through solid walls,

I would like something more practical: To be able to untie any knot must be a super power as not all can do it. Or alternatively if I could possess a super power, I would possess the USA.

But deep down I know that it there were comic book powers and they were distributed, I would have these super abilities:

  • To run faster than a speeding tortoise,
  • To leap small matchboxes at a single bound,
  • To be able to see through solid windows,

I’d be Mediocre Man.

People would exclaim, ‘Is it a bird? Is it a plain? No, it’s an idiot.’

‘Who will save the day? Please let it be someone else.’
