Super powers

If you had a single superpower, what would you want it to be?  I have given this question a lot of thought.  Here are some ideas I had:
  • Flying
  • Invisibility
  • Teleporting
  • Telekinesis
  • Mind reading
  • Stopping time
I think I would choose telekinesis as my superpower. That way I could move myself, making me fly, and I could move other things without touching them (like the light switch, or a pencil so I could write, or so many other things.) What would you chose?  It doesn't have to be one on the list.

Teleporting. First off, I hate spending time in traffic. And second, I could go on vacation any time whenever I want.

I was asked this question at ward prayer or "stand and stare" as Dad calls it: I said "run really fast" and "eat as much and whatever I want without any consequences." That way I could run to Chuck-a-rama whenever I wanted and eat there all day and never get food poisoning from the turkey pot roast. Ooo, I feel sick just thinking about that.

Not have to sleep. Man, I could get so much done!

First, I have to say that I have thought about this subject myself. I have often wondered what super power I wish I could have.
I suppose I would have to eliminate the ones I wouldn't like first, then go from there.

# Flying

I'm very, very scared of heights. I can remember flying (in airplanes) and falling asleep next to the window, waking up looking straight down and getting all shook up.
I don't think flying would be for me.

# Invisibility

I always thought this would be a cool superpower, however growing up it seemed like I was invisible and I didn't like it very much. So, I don't think invisibility is for me.

# Teleporting

Every time I think about teleporting, I think of the movie, "The Fly". No thanks. I don't want my body to be "mended" together with something like a fly.

# Telekinesis
I remember reading my first Stephen King book, Carrie. A little too scary for me. No thanks. I can get up and move things around if I need to.

# Mind reading
I don't want to read anyone else's thoughts. Sheash, that would be terrible to listen to all those voices all the time running through your head. No thanks to this one.

# Stopping time
Stopping time would be fun. However you would be the only person that was still moving and that seems too lonely for me. No thanks.

I suppose I will have to rely on the super powers that I already have. It's not much, but they are mine just the same.
