"By your powers combined..."

"I am Captain Planet!" Wow, way to take all the credit Captain... How selfish! But awesome marketing by making a dude be Heart. I always wanted to be Wind. I think. I don't know. I liked them all. Until the show got cancelled/replaced/went off television. It always happens to the best of them. Sigh.

Superpowers are those things that you always want all of--if you're me and you want to be the best of the best. When people used to ask "If you could have one superpower, what would it be?" I would respond with "I want the superpower to have ALL superpowers!" If you believe that, you must think I'm a. insanely brilliant, or b. egotistical. I promise, folks, that really wasn't my answer. I think it was one of those mainstream "I want the power to grow really tall!" kind of answers.

Nowadays, I really don't need a superpower. Because I'm a unicorn, so I'm all sorts of magical anyways. I kid. When I really think about it, I don't think I would want something selfish, like the ability to see how my life turned out. No power of persuasion. No invisibility. I'd rather make positive changes in other people's lives. Isn't that really what's important?

Thus, I would want the ability to create unending positivity. I would want to make others smile when I smile. Create optimism in otherwise gloomy circumstances. To me, that is what makes it a superpower.
A ring is what makes a superpower official.
A 25-cent ring from a toy machine contains my superpower. This ring was a silly moment turned into fun memory, memento and all. My sister and I were goofing off with the little temporary tattoo machines hoping to get a turtle image while waiting for a movie to start. I swear, we wasted like $7. Fourteen tattoos later, and no turtle to be found. So with our last 2 quarters, we decided to hit up the ring machine instead. Out popped this beaut for me and a smiley face ring for El. So now, I tend to wear this ring just to put me in a fun mood. Well really because I find it kind of cool! Did I mention this was like 2 years ago? Judge away.

So that, my friends, is my desired superpower. And in other news:
Oh hey, new toy!
Can't wait to test it out! Too bad it doesn't come pre-charged.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be? Why??
