Not-so Super Powers | May 14, 2010

Sometimes when I’m laying on the couch during the day, trying to figure out which day of the week it is and whether or not I’m supposed to be doing something, my mind begins to wander. I know, it’s hard to believe that a mind as sharp and horrifyingly witty as mine can even wander for the shortest amount of time, but it’s the truth. I’m not even embarrassed to admit it. Anyway, sometimes my mind wanders and I have these fantastic thoughts. Now you’re probably asking yourself, “What kind of thoughts Alec?” Well I’ll tell you.

Last summer my wife and I and her mom and sisters went to Park City to go to the Alpine Slide. I hadn’t been since I was a kid so I was looking forward to it. So we were at Park City and we were riding the ski lift when suddenly a thought occurred to me. “This must be what it’s like to fly” I thought to myself. And now you’re all turning to your friends and saying “well of course, everyone has had that thought, geez.” Well I’M NOT DONE so let me finish my thought before you interject your own here. For crying out loud people! Ok, anyway, just as I was thinking about flying, another more absurd thought crossed my mind. “What if I could fly, but I could only fly as fast as the ski lift?” Well wouldn’t that be something? I mean, what the heck use is flying when you can only fly as fast as a ski lift? I swear it took us nearly a half hour just to get to the top of the slide and that wasn’t even to the top of the hill! I guess it could be useful if you climb a lot of hills or go strait up walls or something like that all the time, but I don’t think most people would get a lot of use out of going that slowly. Can you imagine going on a trip that way? Obviously it would save money on travel, but heck you could almost walk wherever you’re going just as fast. What if Superman was only able to fly that fast? Did you ever think of that? Of course not, you’ve taken his miraculous super power of flight for granted, just like everyone else. How shallow of you. Well it wouldn’t do him very much good either if he didn’t have super speed I can tell you that. I don’t know, I don’t really have a point to this, I’m just going with it.

So, enjoy this tidbit until I can think of something else exciting to write about. Obviously it doesn’t happen all that often or I’d be writing on here all the time. I’m sorry to those of you who look for new stuff on here but can’t find it because it’s not there. I look too but I can never find anything new until I come up with something. It’s a vicious circle. Anyway, now I’m just rambling. Have a nice day.
