If you were given magical powers,
would you tell anyone about it?

I don't think I would, but instead I would take simple satisfaction of being able to help others in ways I wouldn't normally be able to.

Fancy said...

If I had magical powers, I wouldn't dare tell anyone about it but would, definitely, use them to heal the sick and help the poor.

come to think of it, the magical power (by its very nature) would lose its potency if you tell anyone about. :)

ME Strauss said...

Hi Scot,
Yes you would make the perfect mild-mannered superhero, helping behind the scenes. I like the idea that conjures in my mind.

Liz

ME Strauss said...

Hi Fancy,
Nice to see you here.

I'm glad to hear that you would be using them to help the sick and the poor. I didn't know the rule about not being able to talk about them. Obviously I've never had magic powers myself.

Ned said...

So, what are you saying? That I DON'T have magical powers? Hmmmphh!

I think if I had magical powers the world would be in for some very rough times, and so would I. The only thing that keeps me and the world relatively safe is that I can't do exactly as I please.

Sure, we all would do lovely things for our fellow man... until he crossed us. C'mon, we're human. Can we just admit that?

ME Strauss said...

Ned,
I would never, ever reveal your secrets. It's no one's business what powers you have unless you wish to tell them.

I see your point about straightening out a few wayward souls with a twitch of the nose. It does have its appeal. . . .

and I would use them on blog spammers so I could get rid of this word verification thing. fejsmtjj

smiles,
Liz

Ned said...

LOL, Liz. YES! Down with word verifications! Down with Spam! and let's stomp the village and plunder and... wait, sorry. I got carried away.

It's the fjyitkw in me. (that's viking for fidget, vikings get restless and start stomping villages when they drink too much grog and get the "fjyitkw")

ME Strauss said...

Smiling big now, Ned,

We can jst suqvn the village and I'm sure they'll take care of the spammers for us.

smiles and ooetpppw.
Liz

No, I wouldn't tell a soul, but I sure would have fun helping out with a little magic here and there.

ME Strauss said...

Hi Easy,

Yeah I don't think I'd tell anyone either. I glad to hear that you'd have fun though. I think that I would worry that all my friends would find me crazy.

smiles,
Liz

Mark Daniels said...

Hmmm...I like to think that I would keep it a secret, doing kind things without being caught. But I wonder whether I could keep my trap shut about it. Good question.

ME Strauss said...

hi Mark,
I know what you mean.
I'd like to keep a secret, but it would be hard not to tell someone. It's sort of like they say "It's lonely at the top."

smiles,
Liz

janus said...

Yep everyone would know I had magical powers, mainly when I declare myself emperor of the Janusonian empire.

power would corrupt me, probably a good reason why God wouldn't want me to have some =P

..shrugs..ok the ability to do good could be fun too. You didn't tell me what my powers were though.

ME Strauss said...

Janus,

Well corruption isn't all bad. At least that's what they say. I didn't pick your magical powers. Huh! Do I have to do all the work for you?

smiles,
Liz

I doubt I could keep it to myself to be honest. I'd know I shouldn't tell anyone, but I'd blab, I know I would lol.

Of course with my luck, I'd get some magical power like, oh I don't know, telekinesis - but the only thing I'd be able to do would be something useless like flush the toilet without touching the little silver handle.

ME Strauss said...

Hey Erin,
Then I wouldn't blame you if you told someone. And there is an upside, think of all the germs you'd be avoiding. :)
