Today’s writing prompt asks what superpower we want and why.
So despite my claims of not being a Trekkie, I will make reference again to the original Star Trek series (which apparently affected me more than I realize) and say that my superpower would without a doubt be teleportation. Beam me up, Scotty .
Now, mind you, I don’t want to go to deep space. My reasons for teleporting around are much more mundane. I love to travel and see new places but I hate the actual “traveling ” part of it (and I am talking about pre-pandemic, before masks, and all the ugliness on planes, etc.) I am not even crazy about driving my own car, by myself, to get somewhere.
But in my superpower world, if I could just beam myself to the Grand Canyon for a visit and then beam myself home–well, that would be cool.
I could beam myself anywhere–places that I would never go because I couldn’t stand the long plane ride. It would be amazing.
But alas, I don’t have that superpower. So it’s wonderful that I have a fabulous imagination and that we have the internet to join us all together so we can “see” what we’ll never visit in person.
