    1. The definition of being invisible is being able to walk thru a room full of teenaged girls and not one of them even notices you. You then can become a middle aged man or a Shoalin Priest.

  1. To be able to read peoples mind and hear their thoughts. It would be bitter sweet, but very useful. My wife already thinks I can, and gets mad at me when I don't read her mind and she actually has to tell me what she is thinking.

        1. I wouldn't want that with mine. Her noodle runs 24-7, even in her sleep. I can clear mine out completely. Sometimes that is the best way to rest that there is.

          Somehow, I think my wife and I will not be separating afterwards. We are peas and carrots.

          1. Our purpose here is to learn and grow, if we keep returning to the same environment and being with the same people, it wouldn't be long before the growth would stagnate and we would stop moving forward. I look forward to all the people I have yet to meet.

              1. You aren't perfect yet, once isn't enough for anyone. And we don't believe in soulmates, it would put too much of a limitation on eternity.

                Always a pleasure.

                1. Here's a funny one for you. After our Alaska trip she's decided that we need to move up there. I wish you could have seen her face when I said be sure to write.

                  Then I proceed to tell her that she would become a popcycle if she lived up there during the winter. (50 below) She already has the coldest feet known to man. She likes to warm them up on my butt when I forget to turn on her electric blanket in the winter time. Now, that rarely happened. It only took a dozen times to train me.

                  1. Tell her that I will go with her. We'll visit you and my wife when we come down for winter. LOL My wife wants to go see, but won't entertain the thought of staying either.

                    As far as cold feet, my wife's feet are the only thing that keep me from becoming a human torch at night. She says I put off so much heat at night she can see the bedroom door from the glow I put off.

                    1. I used to be a great source of heat at night… now with the thinners, my temp is down to 97.3 and Gigglez is not finding me to be that campfire to cozy up to.another reason I want to reduce the pills. The good news is that the price of Plavix went down so when I refill this week I will see a smidge of savings.

                    2. Since I lost the 51 lbs I am cold all time. Like a girl, I have a heater under my desk at work. My doctor has taken me off the cholesterol pills and the diabetes meds. I am no longer a type 2. I've lost 8" in my waist. Yeah me.

                      When the wife does her butt cooling trick, it really gets my attention now.

  2. I'd like to have healing powers. Not just for living things, but all things. Whatever/whoever I walk past is instantly righted. Flat tires inflate, dying trees bloom new growth, sick people are instantly healed..etc. Just walk by with my palms out and everything behind me is righted to it's optimum perfection.

    1. Last time someone claimed to be able to do that they put nails through him and but him on display for all the town to see, I want to be able to hide my "gift" a little better.

      1. Haha… I wouldn't tell anyone…

        ''And old man reaches down to dip his paint brush. He pauses for a moment to rub his arthritic fingers. As he stiffly stands back up to continue the painful chore of painting his home, he's shocked to see that it's already done. And, the pain in his joints no longer exists. He races into the house to tell his wife, who is standing at the sink, where she'd been doing dishes. She's dumbfounded. She doesn't recall doing them. He takes her in his arms, and they dance around the living room. They slowly waltz down the hall and make love like they did 30 years ago. Never knowing how or why. And not caring.''

        Everywhere I went, everything I passed, these strange things would happen. No one would ever know who, how, or why.

        1. At some point, someone is going to notice the 30 foot ring of green plants and magically self painting fences centered on one person. Then everyone will be crowded around you until the men-in-black arrive to take you to area 51 for "debriefing".

          Imagine how pissed everybody is going to be at their freshly mowed grass suddenly being knee high again after it is healed back to the way it was meant to be. lol

          1. Nope, couldn't happen. As soon as they told me to put my hands up, they'd be exposed to my healing palms. Their guns would only shoot water. Their handcuffs would turn to silly string. Their radios would start playing ''We are the World'', and they'd all gather for a group hug, as I slowly slipped away. My powers are Super.

                    1. Sorry, had to take a nap after that one. So you super power would include exhausting the male population?

                    2. Yeah, she exhausted me alright, by making me laugh me head off. Somebody please, please me off the floor!!!!!

            1. Ok, how about the power to shape shift? First, I could be an eagle and scout the land for people needing your assistance. Then I'd be a tiger when you're feeling feisty, and an adorable little kitten to cheer you up when you feeling blue. πŸ™‚

              EDIT: Gotta run. Be back in a couple of hours, if you're online. ttyL8r

                    1. What am I going to do with you? Here I am, sweeping the world with healing palms. Painting houses, growing forests, healing tumors.. helping the seniors get some whoopee. And when you couldn't out gun me, you turn yourself into an adorable, very pettable, ball of fluff. How's a girl supposed to be a super hero when you're so distracting? LOL.

                    2. You have the superpower to make me stand on my head. Which is what I was doing when I was reading your comment stream. Upside down writing?

                    3. No, but the gravitational effects are kinda cool. lololol!

                      There's a trick for everything. Did you know there's a phone app to track the tsunami debris?

                      I just found a site I can watch all of season seven of Weeds. I'm off to bed to watch a few episodes. How's your sleep schedule changes going? Hahaha…

                      Okay, G'Night

                    4. Good Morning. Not bad. You could just count down the days you have left to sleep in, and the day you have to get up early, you'll be tired early. Problem solved.

  3. Hmmm, I will have to think about this one for a while. Not sure I'd want the healing powers, because we need the mistakes of life to learn. Invisible? Pretty good, but being used for good, it has very few uses. Reading minds? Nope would not want to know what anyone thinks, it's none of my business. I already have the ability to balance my checkbook, a skill unknown to many! LOL

    I like the Star Wars Jedi thing "These are not the droids you are looking for"

    Mind control, yeah I like that one. I pick mind control.

          1. No can do, Coggy. Kindly rest your forehead in my palm. Trying to control the minds of others is an illness. Don't attempt looking away. I'll pull that sickness right out of your ass.

            Edited for obvious reasons. I may be a lot of things, ass sucker isn't one of them.

  4. If you ever feel a little bit stupid, just dig this up and read it again; you'll begin to think you're a genius..

    Feeling smarter yet?

    1. I do actually feel like a genius now! Unless of course I died last night while sleeping, which I wouldn't know, because I don't have one of those monitor things to tell me… LOL

  5. I have a real super power right now. I am able to zone out and completely not hear women talking. There is a Kryptonite problem for this however, and that is the constant kicks in the seat of the pants when the switch is turned off. I never knew that the "on" switch was down there.
