What would you choose?<br><br><br>
I'm bored, I have a 2 y/o napping on my lap and I don't dare put him in bed or he'll wake up. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I would love the ability to telaport. Just think "Hmmmm...Hawaii" with my baby in my lap and we'd be there...or even "Hmmmm...Linton, North Dakota" to have been able to go to my aunts funeral...it's a 13 hour drive... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
What power do you want?

Teleporting would be really cool, but humm.... superpowers you say?... umm....<br>
Time travel! or even better being able to clean my house by just blinking my eyes and knowing where everything was.

Either eidetic memory--the version like the waitress who befriended Hiro in Heroes, where she could like flip through a book and start speaking Japanese and stuff--or teleportation.

I'd have to go for time travel. I'd finally be able to get more than 24 hours in a day!

Definitely teleporting! It would be so great to just get somewhere without the travel time.<br><br>
Second choice would be flying.

I would like to be able to put my kid(s) in stasis so I can get stuff done. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: That, or the ability to have a second life in which I'm 25 and single and get to party all the time, but then magically switch back to my regular life and family without having missed any time with them.

Teleporting would be pretty awesome.<br><br>
But I'd also like to have the ability to telepathically put people to sleep. Specifically, my DD <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> BUT how much fun would it be to do that in a really boring meeting? Just ZOT and buddy presenting about the latest features in the product would be collapsed on the podium, snoozing away. Or, you're on a plane and the annoying lady beside you keeps trying to convert you to her religion - ZOT! she's out for the rest of the flight, and you get her peanuts. Plus it's not something that will get you really noticed and stuck in a lab somewhere with scientists hooking up electrodes to your delicate bits, whereas teleporting is not so discreet.

I saw the title and came in to answer Teleportation. Guess its a popular answer. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I would just love to be able to live wherever I wanted and instantly zap myself to the office, to visit family. I hate driving and these days I just don't want to fly so it would be really handy.

Ooh, that would be awesome ... especially if you do it to yourself too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> Not to mention your husband ... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:<br><br>
(Actually, my husband has insomnia and also stays up too late and loses track of time ... so if I could just get him to lie down and cuddle for a minute, then knock him out telepathically ....!)

I'm an enjoy the journey kind of person, so teleportation is out for me. I like to drive.<br><br>
BUT<br><br>
I do want to have the ability to wriggle up my nose and clean my house while I sit back with my bon bons on MDC while my baby sleeps wonderfully and the older kids all get along... meanwhile I'll nod my head and the car will be fixed, lawn mowed, and dinner ready.<br><br>
Yeah, that'd be great.<br><br>
I'd also like to be invisible sometimes so I can spy on my teenager. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

Okay the "blink and supper is cooked" "blink and the house is spotless" "blink and the laundry is done" all that stuff...that would be really dang cool...much more useful than teleportation, but not near as fun LOL

Either a combination of eternal youth and immortality, or else I'd like to be able to shoot laser-beam death rays out of my eyes when I'm really annoyed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I have to say I'm with you on all counts! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Except well, I'd wish I were 19 since I'm 23 now.
