A Superpower

I’m linking up today on the Wednesday Word linkup, hosted by Debbie. Each week Deb gives us a word prompt to write about. This week’s word is empower. I’m probably going a totally different direction than most this week, but that’s the fun part about this link up.

When you were a kid, did you ever think about having a superpower? I think back then I probably wanted the power to fly. That would be cool. But I’ve since changed my mind. Now, I would want the power to control time. Is that lame??

Let’s ignore all of the ramifications every movie has ever taught us about meddling with time (although it worked out fairly well for Sirius Black…). Just go with me on this one. Life seems so busy and rushed now-a-days and I often find myself feeling like I just don’t have enough time in the day. There are so many instances where I wish I could just stop time and live in that moment. The ability to slow time down, speed it up, or freeze it would be amazing. I have a lot of stipulations to go with that, but we’ll keep it simple today and just leave it at that.

Unfortunately, I do not have this superpower (or any, for that matter). When I go out on a run, particularly on trails, I refer to that time as “Western Time.” It’s the closest I get to controlling time, and for now that’s good enough for me.

If you could have any one superpower, what would it be and why?

  1. Superpower. So many choices. You can fly in an airplane, go fast in a car, swim in a submarine, etc. Controlling time is a hard one. Time shifting would be cool. Guess until I figure these things out I’ll just need to enjoy every minute.


  2. To many people, the running you do is indeed a superpower! Mountains, trails? I think that’s even more impressive that fussing with the clock!
