This is one of my favorite Truth or Dare questions. I always ask people if it’s truth “What superpower would you want?” If it’s a dare, “Explain to us your superpowers and sing to us your theme song.” It’s evil and hilarious what some people come up with.
Mine is simple. I want to be able to teleport: to be able to pop things (including myself) from one location to another location on whim of thought.
I have too many friends and family members scattered all over this planet who I never get to see, and I always want to travel to different places, but the actual act of travelling almost always renders me ill.
Now, if I were being truly smart, I would want the ability to heal, so I wouldn’t have MS anymore. But I am so used to being myself and living life as I do that convenient transportation seems like a cooler superpower to me than being able to heal anything by touching it.
There was a point in time when I wanted the ability to freeze time like Piper in the TV show Charmed, but it has limited uses.
If I could pick a package of superpowers, I’d take the Whitelighter package: teleportation by orb and healing by touch. I like the idea of being able to travel and heal. That’s sorta my schtick, being there for people and making things better when I can.
What about you?
