My superpower

June 12, 2018

Seriously, I don’t tell many people about my superpower. Some people know I have this ability, and they often use it to their advantage, and I don’t really mind. The only problem is that they don’t realize they are using my superpower so they take it for granted.

What is this superpower?

I can think.

Yeah, I know it doesn’t sound that remarkable… but if it isn’t, why don’t the people I encounter do it?

Instead, they just ask me for the answers.

I never claimed to be a math whiz, but those around me ask me instead of figuring it out for themselves. When people need an answer for just about anything else, it’s the same story- ask the Squarest Peg; don’t try to think it through.

It’s no wonder I sometimes feel like the smartest person in the room when I think and see no evidence anyone else does.

Thinking seems easy, but it must be a superpower. Otherwise everyone could do it.
