What is Your Superpower?

Breaking my goal of avoiding TV, I watched "Who Wants to be a Superhero?" for kicks last night. The contestants were absolute characters, and did their best to stay IN character as well. This morning it left me wondering, what kind of superhero could I be? Phil's superpowers are clear enough, heck, he's already a living breathing action figure. You would just have to pick between GI Joe and Supercop. But what about me? With all my interests and hobbies, I MUST be able to come up with something. Something better than that damn "cell phone girl" or "monkey woman"

So on my drive to work this morning (all 40 minutes of it) I tried to come up with my superhero alter ego. It wasn't easy- I decided that superpowers should be derived from an inherent personality or physical trait, so "Mega Shoe-Shopping Girl" wasn't a strong idea. Finally, I determined (in true Heather fashion) that I could turn some of my faults into skills that work in my favor. Brilliant! The things I wish I could change about myself would become precious to me! My shortcomings would turn into protective powers, such as my annoying laugh or inability to dance could be used to frighten away or nauseate a villain or attacker. My terrible housekeeping would ensure that my secret lair was safe from attack! A-HA!

Since I hate my cheeky grin the most, I propose my superhero identity be known as "The Grinner" ...

Since I happen to believe that shoe-shopping IS a super-power and inherent to anyone's personality (seriously, you either love it or hate it - I happen to love it and have several stories...*ahem*)I think you should have gone with that one...
