What If Wednesday: What If I had a Superpower?

Today's Topic:  What If...I had a Superpower?

Remember...only 5-10 minutes of writing.  And....go!


I would be Super Hot Ash. 

I would have a rockin' hot body naturally, because it would just be part of my Superpowers.  You can't have a superpower without a smokin' hot bod in case you decide you want to be a Superhero in a lycra/spandex suit.  Or if you're kind of kinky like me, totally embrace the Cat Woman suit know, the Hot Ash version.

I don't know if I would choose to be a Superhero though.  Maybe I would just want to keep my superpower a secret so that I could help people quietly, acting like everything I did was a random act of kindness so they would believe in the goodness of people again, restoring faith in humanity, or even just good luck.  A secret Superhero would never be put on a pedestal, and would never be turned on by a community for not being able to stop or prevent a tragedy.

Then again, I could be the next big thing like Spiderman or Batman.  When I was growing up, there wasn't a huge selection of female Superheroes.  I could have all kinds of pithy sayings about doing good, being whatever you want to be, and be a positive role model for girls in my community.  And I would have awesome merchandise, and a big house where I would have really cool Gatsby style parties. 

Having a superpower would have it's personal advantages as well.  I would be able to use my superpower to my advantage in business and be very well to do.  I would be able to give my family a good life, and they in turn would help me to keep my secret.

I don't know what my superpowers would be.  But I would try to make the best of whatever I got.  But until the day a radioactive spider bites me or a magical Egyptian Mau brings my toxic sludge soaked body back to life, I'm just going to have to settle for trying to be a good person, doing random acts of kindness, and being the best person I can be.
