Well, I'm not too sure that an introvert would really make the best choice for a superhero, do you? I mean, can you picture Superman holed up in his room reading books? Captain America knitting and thinking about life? Thor, for God's sake, refusing a dinner date?
No, I don't think that the life of a superhero would be the life for me.
It's overrated, all that glory. All that stress. All that commitment. You have to constantly be ON all the time.
I prefer to be in the background.
Doing things here and there where I'm needed.
Nothing big: Taking out the recycling.
Picking up bottles some kid threw out the window of his car.
Helping old ladies cross the street.
I want to be in the background.
Maybe I'd like to fly.
Just once, mind you.
This was written for today's One Minute Writer because I'm feeling lazy today and one minute of writing feels about right. The prompt was "If you somehow became a superhero, what would your power be?"
