The Daily Post’s Daily Prompt 1/13/2016 | Now You See Me
“You have a secret superpower: the ability to appear and disappear at will. When and where will you use this new superpower? Tell us a story.”
Are we talking a bad ass cloak, or an actual power? I want a cloak!
I’d like to think that I’m mature enough to only use the power of invisibility for good, but I know myself too well. Sure, I’ll stop all of the random robberies on the street that I see, and scare the crap out of mean kids that I see bullying others… but knowing me, I’ll also track down people who bullied me and my friends in school, maybe pull their pants down in public or something…
I probably wouldn’t commit any crimes for myself, like robbing a bank, or stealing priceless artifacts from museums, because I feel like having this power wouldn’t change who I am as a person, and that I would still have all of my morals. With that being said, I might take jobs doing related things for wealthy people, where I don’t ask any questions, do as I’m told, remain ignorant, and make enough money to live well. I’d make one hell of a super spy, that’s for sure.
And just think about how amazing you would be as a journalist, or a reporter of some sort, if you could go anywhere, at any time, and get recordings and photographs of anything you wanted. That would be amazing. Think of all of the horrible, corrupt people that you could take down, all of the truths and lies that you could reveal. You could do amazing things for the world, and right so many wrongs!
I think what I would love the most, is sneaking onto planes, trains, boats, etc., and traveling the world. I could visit countless countries, taking incredible, footage and close-ups of animals that don’t normally interact well with humans, without fear of being mauled or eaten. What an experience.
In my scenario, of course, that anyone I’m touching would also turn invisible, as long as we are touching, so that I could bring my son and fiance around the world with me. That would be amazing, albeit a bit tricky.
The possibilities to do good and explore are endless, but the possibilities do go not-so-good and make a bit of profit are tempting as well. Maybe dabble in a bit of both? Hmm.
Thanks for reading, friends. What would you do?
