Bloganuary: Common-Sense Girl

What is a superpower you’d love to have?

My response to this Bloganuary topic came very easily. A year or so ago I actually was inspired to create such a character. Sadly, my motivation came from experiencing an overwhelming number of individuals lacking an important virtue. I felt an intense need to assist all these suffering people.

While others may think that seeing through solid walls, flying or having extreme strength would be extraordinary gifts, I came up with a slightly different aptitude.

Hopefully, when someone contemplates acquiring a super power, she plans to put it to good use. For example, if you have ever watched a car slide off an icy road during a blizzard, possessing the power to latch onto the vehicle and pull it back to safety would be a proper use of such strength.

I too, would like to use a super-power to help people. However, rather than rescuing someone from a natural disaster or a wicked criminal, I would like to save people from, well, themselves. And, hence I created COMMON-SENSE WOMAN!

A failure to utilize common sense when moving through life, interacting with others or making even fairly insignificant decisions not only affects that person, but it can have seriously negative influence on another person, much of society or even the planet.

If I could have one superpower I would have the capacity to spot someone who is about to act without common sense. I would fly in and wave my magic common sense wand which helps remind someone to act reasonably. I can’t imagine a more useful superpower to have!
