Against my will, I’ve been granted the ability to appear and disappear at will.  I don’t really think I’d use my newfound talent much with one exception.  Doesn’t everyone have that one person or more that they dread meeting? Chances are, they are prone to talking–a lot–about people you have never met and will never meet, totally overlooking voicing any questions about your life or even giving you an opening to switch the topic of conversation.  You see them as you enter a restaurant, and there they are.  In a split second, they will see you and If they see you, they are apt to wave you over and ask you to share their table and all you want is to sit, pull out your device of choice and have a nice meal while reading blogs or emails or listening to an audio book.

Blink!  You disappear, then reappear around the corner  on your way to a different restaurant, because it’s hard to place an order when you are invisible.


The Prompt: You have a secret superpower: the ability to appear and disappear at will. When and where will you use this new superpower? Tell us a story.

Only one day until I leave for the beach.  If I don’t get posted for the next two days, I hope you use it as a chance to catch up on one of my other 1,559 blogs that I’ve published over the past two years.  I don’t even  remember most of them.  That’s not much of an incentive for you to read them, is it?  Ha.  I should be back to the old grind on the 16th!!!

    LOVE your take on this. I hate walking in and having to interact with someone I would rather not. Sadly I have been known to pull out my cell phone and act like I can’t either see them, or am too busy to chat with them. 🙂

    It would be much nicer to blink and have THEM disappear, so you wouldn’t have to change your plans….or blink and they turn into nice people!! I think I’d just like to blink and be hanging out on a nice warm beach somewhere when it’s cold and dreary here in Oregon…or when it’s over 100 degrees in the summer. No worries about traveling, boarding the animals, stress of packing. It would also be nice so this could happen for just a few hours at a time, so I could still get my stuff done around here, but take a couple of hours off to sit on that nice warm beach, watch the sunset, have a picnic, do some tidepooling. Then blink and be back home to all my comforts and animal family that I miss sooooo much when traveling.

    If I had a Blink super power I couldn’t resist using it to flit here, there and everywhere 🙂 Enjoy the beach. Hope you don’t bump into one of those self-absorbed types!

    I remember my 19 yr old son going to a beach themed party one chilly winter evening dressed only in his bathing trunks and a bathrobe. On the way there in his warm car he noticed the gas light was blinking. He was forced to stop and fill up with gas, and got some very funny looks from the other people getting gas. Ah, youth.
