The Leg up
Physical pain is a good friend of mine. We have been besties since early childhood.
The short list is as follows-
-ran over by a car at 3 years old
-knocked out by a croquet ball at 11
-knocked out by a pitched baseball at 12
-broken arm and 27 stitches in skull from a falling tree
– fall from the top step of a 12 foot ladder onto concrete while using a running pole saw. (why yes it was the step that states don’t use for standing)
I should probably be more careful.
But some injuries can not be avoided.
Take my most recent.
-bitten by spider.
I don’t know what kind of spider bit me, but I have been expecting my superpowers to become evident sooner or later.
Peter Parker got bit by a spider and for his troubles he got
-wall crawling abilities
-web slinging abilities
So far… For my troubles I have received
-a hole in my leg
I can’t fight crime and attract legions of fans with that.
All I am attracting is grossed out looks from my family and…
That’s not a superpower,
It’s a stupidpower.
