Somedays I'm a Super Girl

This is an older picture of Vicky. From 2002. When I probably 7 to maybe 9 my sister Vicky told us she had super-powers. She could do magic. Make things move by looking at them. Make things disappear. Prevent car accidents. All of these occurred when nobody was watching of course. She claimed the only time it worked in front of us girls was if everyone had 100% faith. If even one person had one iota of disbelief her powers were voided. We were cleaning out the garage one time (mom's idea) and converting it into a rollerskating rink (our idea). We had just finished sweeping and there was a big pile of dirt, dust, nails, and spiders. Nobody wanted to sweep it up because of the dead spiders. So we decided to call on Vicky's Super-Powers. Boy did she have us going! She paced the pile. Circle the pile. Waved her hands over it. And finally went into a deep meditation. I'll admit I was ready for a big teal spark and the pile to be gone. I watched. Vicky's face contorted and as she opened her eyes she said, "Someone here doesn't believe." She stared each of us down one and by one. I believed. It wasn't me stopping her magic from working. I think it was Krissy. Her and Krissy got into a big fight about it actually. If Krissy would have just believed who knows... maybe that pile would have disappeared.
I recently found out I have super-natural, super-hero powers. I can't fly. I'm not the Invisible Woman. I don't have a lasso of truth (frown). My super power is still quite phenomenal. I can't prevent accidents, I can't make a pile of garage rubble disappear but I think it's pretty cool. I also find it interesting that like most superheros I wasn't born with this. It has come a little later in life. 24 years later. Are you ready?
I am immune to all man-made medicines! My body will combat them! Tylenol? Resistant. Nyquil? Impervious. Benadryl? Invulnerable. Claritin? Insusceptible. Give me your best, your strongest, and I will destroy them. Medicines stand no chance against me. They fail against my super powers.
If you don't believe me you can ask the cold I have had for a week now.


Go ahead, call me Wonder Woman. Admit it, there is a striking resemblence.
**THIS SUPER POWER IS DIRECTLY CORRELATED WITH MY CABERGOLINE INTAKE. MAYBE IT'S THE CABERGOLINE.....
THANKS TRACY.

That made me laugh so hard. I love how full of crap little girls are!!! Hahahaha!! I told my sister Beads that I was really the author, L.M. Montgomery, and I wrote under a pen name, because I didn't want the paparazzi stalking our house. She totally believed me, for like a year. Dude, I'm so sorry no medicine is working for you. That BITES. So that has only just happened since you've been taking that medicine for your pituitary? I'm starting to get a cold now. I'm taking tons and tons of echinacea and hoping it will win.

I'm sorry you have a cold, but I LOVE your story. Anyone who could get me to blog has to have SUPER POWERS. ;)
I've told you this before, but seriously you should write books.
