Super Powers

If watching the TV show "Alias" made me conscious of my lack of abilities, watching "Heroes" makes me feel positively irrelevant. On that show, they have all sorts of super powers; flying, bending time and space, spontaneous healing, predicting the future...

Super powers do run in my family, though. My sister Hope says her super power is her ability to digest rotten food. Charity is a menstrual mimic- she steals other peoples menstrual cycles.

Together they will save the world.

Maybe your super power is the ability to steal only the funny or silly parts of other people's unconscious mannerisms. It's as if you capture their secret identity and use it as a weapon against those who take life too seriously.

Or maybe you have the super power of devoted prayer and penance, that saves the world in ways that are invisible to you ... at least for the time being.

Whatever your super powers, your secret is safe with me. If anyone asks, I'll just tell them that you're hopelessly normal and in no way special at all. Nope, nothing to see here. Just an ordinary girl. No reason to pay any attention to her.

Except to those of us who know your secret!

And don't forget Alice. She can soar to the tree tops!

Leaping tall buildings in a single bound is overrated anyway.

Maybe your superpower is the ability to cry a lot without lashes. Personally, I think that's a pretty cool superpower. I do. I do.

Your super power is making people laugh until they cry with your humor especially with storytelling.
