Magical Powers...

On Friday at the office, I was bored. There was work to be done, but it was the kind that didn't engage all of the senses, if you get my drift.

And because of the boredom, my mind started to drift to other things; writing, what I wanted to do for myself, and why I hadn't won last week's lotto prize. I know what I need to do, but the planets are either out of alignment or my karma's all shot to hell.

Wouldn't it be cool to live in a world where people could use magic? I love magic and what it encompasses.

If I could have 3 magic powers, what would they be?

1. The ability to transport myself anywhere - if I wanted to get away for the weekend, or do some background studying for a book, I could just zap myself there; no passport, airplanes or customs!

2. Invisibility - to go anywhere and not be seen; this could be seen as a dangerous trait though; spying, or stealing, but I wouldn't use the power for that. So the question is; what would I use it for???

3.  Being friends with animals - I LOVE animals; they are the beauty that makes our world so fascinating. I would love to know what they were thinking (although I can pretty much guess), and what we, as humans, could do to make life less difficult for them.

Magical powers isn't quite the same as wishing for something; a wish can be made and after it's been fulfilled, that's the end of it. Unless of course, you owned a magic wand.

I found that I had to think on this a little more than I realized; magic comes with its pros and cons.

So, what 3 magic powers would YOU want?

This reminds me of the three wishes games I played as a child. Invariable, on the third wish, we'd all ask for three more wishes. :)

If I could have magical powers I'd want:

1. The ability to fly
2. Being able to read people's minds (especially car salesmen to see if they're lying) :)
3. Ability to stay slender even after I've downed a bag of Hershey's semi-sweet chocolate bars. :)

Interesting column. I'll answer quickly so might change my mind during the day.
1. The ability to help people more
2. The ability to be anywhere I wanted, instantly
3. I really like the three more wishes idea!
Done in a hurry and I'll probably regret not thinking harder on this.

I'd love the ability to create a bigger bank account, so I could have more time to write. I'd love a quick view into the future, to be sure that all of the work I'm doing now to help my kids get their college degrees will be worth the sacrifice.

And I'd love just for one day/night, to be a young-ish man, so I could really experience sex from a male perspective...think of how much it would add to my erotic scenes! Grin...

Hey ladies! I'm signing on from work, cuz I can't get into the blog from my home computer; McAfee doesn't like it for some reason. :(

Tina, I like your third idea! lol Alas, my wish has not come true every time I ask for it!

Jean, your ideas are great! I found it took me a little longer to think of 3 wishes instead of 1.

Fiona, good for you! I love your last one; can you imagine? lol
