And What SuperHero Would You Be?

(No... this isn't a "Facebook Likeness" test.)

It's "SuperHero Day" at Micah's school, which makes me wonder who, if I were a Superhero, I would be.

I've always fancied the name "Captain Midnight", but as that one's taken, who would I be, and what would I have as a superpower?

These days I'd make a very good "First Mate 3:30am"...

As I was getting out of the shower this morning I thought of what my superpower could be: "Forgetfulness".

If I could choose a "super" power, I'd take the ability to make people forget bad memories and experiences.

Kind of like Will Smith's Character's "Flashy thingy" in Men In Black.

What a gift it could be to just brush your hand over someone's head and take away the bad thoughts, memories and experiences that haunt them and hold them back; that keep them from reaching their full potential, or having to struggle harder to do so.

Maybe I still would be "Captain Kitchen"...

And I could give you forgetfulness, and make you chicken noodle soup an' all.

    I love the idea of ridding people of the things that are harmful and hurtful in their life. Smart choice - I would have never thought of this. Hope your doing well these days.

  2. Captain flashy thing.

    Has a distinct Marvel Comics ring to it.

    Now you just need to find a costume (where's Edna Mode when you need her?).
