Superhero Clutch

On a recent flight from San Francisco to Hong Kong to Singapore, I finished reading Matilda and was convinced that I may have telekinesis, I even tried staring at objects on the table trying to tell myself that I can make them move. And sometimes, the inanimate objects would actually move — but this could have also been due to jet lag or the uneven table leg — but just a hint of a wiggle (even if it’s from my own delusion from blinking) was enough to convince myself that I most definitely had such a gift.

But isn’t this the great ol’question we ask one another, I am pretty sure even after watching X-Men we begin the silly question amongst each other, “if you could have one super power, what would it be?”. And after watching Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson, I wish I had the ability to instantly make myself excellent at any skill in the world and speak every single language and stop everyone in their tracks. Flying is also one of those fun and expected answers, same as walking through walls or having night vision is sort of a bore to me. Like, who cares?

You can say that this sort of inspired me to sport my Stella McCartney Superhero Clutch to a recent event. It was definitely an ice breaker. I thought that it also went well with my #iwokeuplikethis look. Kind of dishevelled, like if Clark Kent rushed out of bed to tend to a crisis. But I also picture myself looking like myself and not all Superhero-y in spandex and cape.

The best thing about considering your imaginary super power is that the opportunities are endless, and you will notice that most people’s choice of super power is often a self-indulgent one, it’s essentially common knowledge that you don’t get a super power without understanding that you’d have to use it for the benefit of society, right? Except for villains of course.

So if you could have any superpower in the world, what it would be and how would this superhero alter-ego’s costume look like? Share on the comments below!

I think my superhero costume would involve nude sandals of some sort.

Thanks for reading!
