I probably spend an unhealthy amount of time thinking about super powers.
I want to have them.
I have a big fat crush on Batman, although Superman is pretty darn swell, too. If a new superhero movie is coming out, I want to see it. From Hancock to Iron Man, X-Men to Watchmen, I love them all.
And after giving it some serious thought, I've decided what superpower I would like to have most of all. Are you ready for it?
TELEPORTATION!!! *swoons, faints*
Sure, flying and super strength would be great. Laser eyes, controlling the weather, making fire, ice, or even paperclips would be a great party trick. But teleportation is where it's at.
Now let me be specific--I want the kind of teleportation that we saw in the movie Jumper. I want to go anywhere in the world, arrive in my clothes without a hair out of place, and be able to take other people and things with me. And I don't want it to hurt like Harry Potter describes Apparation. Just dress appropriately, choose the destination and voila!
I would never have to drive to work again. I could sleep until 5 minutes before I had to be at the conference table for report. I could go on vacation and never get a hotel room--I'd just come home every night. My own bed, all my clothes, and my favorite shampoo and conditioner just waiting for me with no packing hassles.
Got a few extra hours? How about dinner in Paris? How about lunch with a friend in Texas, Florida, Colorado, North Carolina, or even Dublin, Ireland? (Note: Love you, Slingers. *kiss, kiss*) Moving truck? Forget that, I'll just sit on the couch and zap it to my new house. I'd never go through airport security again, I'd never be late for anything, I'd never forget an ingredient at the grocery store...
I'm getting all swoony again. I have to stop talking about this or I'll just be depressed.
So, what would you choose as YOUR superpower?
