The ability to control time

Today's Prompt: Superpower Day

Don’t you wish there was more time? More time in the day to finish those never ending chores. More time to cut away at that mountain of college coursework. Hi Ashley! Hi Kerri!

How about more time to sleep? Lord knows I could use some of that.

What about a little more time to spend with friends and loved ones? I know I never want those special moments to end. I know we all want those D-meetups to last forever as well. Yet they come and go so quickly.

And don’t you just hate that the weekend and other days off from work are over as soon as they’ve started?  Yeah, I do too.

So, my superpower would be the ability to control time.  The ability to slow it down occasionally.  Add a little extra time to the day here and there.

Then maybe, just maybe, I’d be able to enjoy those special moments as they are happening.  Instead of being left wondering what the hell just happened.

    So awesome. I love the line about being in the moment, not simply reflecting upon it once it has passed . . . so good.

    Thanks for the shout :].

    Mike’s superpowers:

    1) Perseverance in spades!

    2) Super social abilities!

    3) … Somehow, I think you may have some of the time control magic already … What do you think ?

    Seriously, I’m not joshin ya. From my generally silent perspective, I see that you’ve got numbers 1 & 2 above in good measure. They might not sound like superpowers, but I count them as such. I just wish I had some more of them myself here 🙂

  • Mike Hoskins

    Absolutely love this! Great superhero, Mike! I’d agree that controlling time would be a wicked awesome power to have, not just on the D-front but life generally. More time for sleep?!?! Dude. I’m there! 🙂

    I am “assuming” you would have the power to go backwards too! That would also be fun to be able to rewind time a little bit and do things slightly differently.

    • Mike

      Yeah, Kelly, the power to go backwards would be part of the package. But I’m not as interested in changing the past as I am in being able to focus on and enjoy the here and now.
