Superhero

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.

Nah.

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.

Superhero?

Nah.

 I want to be in the background.

 OK.

 OK.

 Maybe I'd like to fly.

Just once, mind you.

Just once.

My favorite dreams are the ones when I'm flying! And when I actually realize in the dream that I'm only dreaming and don't want the flying dream to end.
