5 Super Powers I Wish I Had

September 18, 2013

i don't want any of those comic book super powers.  i mean, i guess flying would be cool.  then i wouldn't be afraid of planes and heights, since i could fly and therefore not crash down to earth.  and you always think reading minds would be fun, but then you watch the episode of buffy where it almost kills her because she can't tune anyone out.  but i think i have much better ideas of what i'd like my super power to be.

first and foremost, let's be honest, the power to eat taco bell and chocolate all day and not get fat or sick.



the power to make my pinterest dreams a reality.  i'd like my pinterest closet.  and my pinterest house.  what more would i ever need in life if i got everything i pinned?  i'd pin healthy food and skinny bodies and kate spade shoes and poof, they'd appear.  i'd have to stop pinning horses and foxes and puppies though, that'd get awkward real quick.

the power to resist hangovers.  i am no longer the 20 year old balla i thought i was back in college.  hangovers actually hit me now.  gone are the days of 5 nights out a week and still making it to my 8:30 a.m. classes.  but really, even in college i had a few close calls.  i would love the power to never have hangovers.  (yes i realize i could just not drink and achieve this, but i don't want that.  i actually like the taste of beer, and wine, and most cocktails.)  i want to play 5 hours of flip cup and go on my merry way the next day without the hit by a truck feeling.

the power to snap clean laundry back in to my closet.  i don't even mind washing and drying, it's the putting away of clothes that really gets me.  folding, hanging, whatever, it's not fun.  i'd like to just snap it back into it's proper place.  like mary poppins.

the power to pause time.  i don't really need to go back and forth in time, but i'd love to just pause it.  pause it in the middle of an exam to have more time to write an answer.  pause time on weekends to get done the lame things like cleaning without missing the fun things like having time to hang out with friends and watch football.  pause right after my alarm goes off to sleep a few extra hours minutes.


what would you want your super power to be?

  4. I need these all right meow! I'd also love to be able to teleport; get from one place to another w/out driving/flying/walking (am I using that word right?) How awesome would life be if you're in the middle of a freezing Chicago winter and are like, hmmm, I'll just see what it's like over in Jamaica today, and poof! you're there! can you make that my super power, pretty please?

    ps: I'm way late to the party on this one, but I just noticed your new button (not your new design, I'm not THAT late) and girrrrrl, you got it going on.

  7. Those are all good. I'd have to add to the laundry and say have the clean dishes unload themselves from the dishwasher. I don't know why I hate unloading that so much.

  8. Folding clothes is the WORST, everyone in the house hates doing it so of course I get to do it. Lucky me.

  10. it's fucking 2013, why hasn't anyone invented a machine or house where it does your laundry, folds it and puts it all away?! they're sending machines to go to mars and shit, why can't they come up with something like this?

  13. Yup, I agree with every single one of these (just substitute Taco Bell and chocolate ice cream for antipasto, pizza and cupcakes). And that photo is hilarious!
