Oh, the possibilities
Watching TV shows over the years that were steeped in pseudo-occult and sci-fantasy --Buffy, X-Files, Heroes -- I’ve thought about what super power I would like to have. I immediately went to the obvious…invisibility, reading minds, flying. But my analytical Virgo brain came up with various reasons why those wouldn’t be practical.
Then one day it came to me...I would love to be a shape shifter. Holy schmoley, how much fun would that be!
I think maybe first I would become Pamela Anderson for a while, as a psychological experiment of course, just to see how differently men would react to me. Next I’d morph into Fergie (the singer, not the Duchess) so I could make out with Josh Duhamel.
Then I’d become the head of the company I used to work for and fire my old boss. I’d spend some time as Bill Gates so I’d know what it’s like to be the richest man in the world. (You’re gonna want to be around then because I will be giving away lots of moolah.)
I would have fun being a Polar Bear who terrorizes Sarah Palin, but first I’d be a master thief who steals all the guns out of her house.
I would love to spend some time as Michael Phelps just to know what it feels like to have an amazing athletic body. Next I’d be Patty Scialfa so I could rock on stage with Bruce Springsteen.
Well, as you can see, the fun could go on forever, so I’ll jump to question portion of this post. Multiple choice:
A) If you could have a super power what would it be?
B) If you were a shape shifter, who/what would you become…and why?
