Thank you for having me here today at your awesome blog! I write a lot of paranormal books. You know the kind where there are shifters, angels and demons… a lot of the characters have many powers and abilities. I think having powers and abilities would be fun, maybe not every power but some of them!
Someone recently asked me if I were a superhero what kind would I be? What kind of powers would I have? I thought this was an interesting question and so I gave it some thought. Here is what I came up with.
If I were a superhero…
I would be tall.
Yes I can see you rolling your eyes and shrugging. Well you try living at five foot two. I bet that would be on your list too. Lol. I went to a field trip recently for a bunch of fourth graders and I realized that I wasn’t no taller than any of them. In fact some of my friends have daughters that are taller than me who are like 12. I would love to have long legs (tan ones so I could wear shorts, lol). And think about it if I did – I could run faster, reach higher and never be irritated at the grocery store again! (Why oh why do they put my coffee creamer on the very top shelf in the back?! Not fair!)
I would have night vision.
Not only would it come in handy for catching the bad guys and watching out for trouble but I would also be able to drive better at night. (me + night driving = stay off the road). I would never stub my toe in the middle of the night again and I would never have to turn on the bathroom light at night to make sure there isn’t anything creepy lurking in the toilet. (Please, I know you look too).
I would have a super speedy metabolism.
Then I could eat donuts. Enough said.
I could read people’s thoughts.
Because then I would know if they were lying, about to lie or if they had nefarious plans I would need to thwart. Plus, wouldn’t you sometimes want to know what other people were thinking? I think this power would have to have some kind of switch though bc no way would I want to hear what someone was thinking all the time!
I would wear a really cool super hero outfit.
What would be included in said outfit? Knee high boots, weapons hidden around me (like a taser and some daggers!) some cool shades…. But no cape. I think a cape might get in the way.
Oh and a side – kick!
I would definitely have a side kick if I was a super hero. I wish I had a side kick now just for everyday life. Wouldn’t that make things so much easier??
And finally… if I were a superhero I would have super speed.
Because I could get anywhere faster (like when people were in need) and cleaning the bathrooms wouldn’t take like half a day! I think anything that cut down on cleaning time would make life a whole lot easier!!
So that’s my list! How about you? If you were a superhero what kind of powers would you have?
