If you could have one special power what would it be?

  1. As I make my rounds down the long halls I always think, wouldn't it be cool to be able to FLY!
    So what would yours be?
    Oh and I'm afraid of heights! Go figure?

    Telepathy - no - I might find out exactly what people are thinking! no thanks!

    Instant Smell Eradication? - useful but not the top of the list everyday

    Instant call bell silence - no-one has THAT much power!

    Healing Hands - fantastic - but sooner or later you would be hounded by all those who want to stay young forever or those who are sure they are sick so why cant't you heal them? On second thought no, too much hassle.

    An ability not to notice nastiiness - useful but this one does come with age

    Telekinesis - the ability to move objects without touching them - has possiblities - thinks, sore feet needing to go to store room again for forty millionth time this shift - yeah! this is it! This is the power I want!!!!

    My first thought was fly, but I think now I'd say talk to animals and babies. It would be cool to ask my dog why she does the things she does, how she feels about being fixed, etc . And what if you could talk to a hurt baby in er and ask what happened, or just ask a baby what they were thinking?

    Telepathy would make nursing SOOO much easier .

    Just think - you would KNOW the three things someone plans on asking for (one thing at a time) and be able to bring them all into the room in one trip .

    I grew up reading comic books, so I'd LOVE to have super strength and invulnerability.

    I'd love to be able to be invisible and intangible, too.

    A trained Telepath can...
    make themselves invisble to the mind and therefore the eyes of the person
    among many other things

    Definetly telepathy, or flying, or controlling the weather, or superspeed, or X-ray vision, or telekenesis or.......

    Well maybe just the ability to actually make a decision is all the super power I could deal with right now!

    I guess this could be a special power, I would like to have portions of my mind accessable only at a time I wish to remember them.

    For example, when something reminds me of something hurtful in my past during an inappropriate time (like in a meeting), I would like the ability to block the memory.

    Make sense?

    I just wish at times I didn't have so much history, or maybe just painful history, I dunno? Would that make me less human?
    Sure would make life more tolerable.

    I would like the ability to become invisible. Hey Guissippee Welcome Back, I've missed you!!!!!!
  12. by   nursegoodguy
    Thanks Badbird! Oh yeah let me be invisible too! Or the ability to move objects with your mind so the next time I have a patient fall I could use my mind rather than my back! I would also love to be able to turn back the clock for some people... Can you imagine if your sweet little 91 year old patient was suddenly 21 again!

    Oooooh that levitating things with your mind sounds like what *I* want. Heavy people, beds, me...... be able to just float them around like on star trek.
