If I were a super-hero...
 
If I were a super-hero I would be the Sticky Savior. 


Why you ask?







While I was in the midst of papers and flying words I had no other
choice but to hold a piece of paper between my lips.  You know what I
mean, I am sure you have done this before. 




Well, when I went to remove the paper it was stuck to my top lip.  Not
kinda stuck, but REALLY stuck!  I gave it a little tug and it pulled
on the skin-- a little too much for comfort when taking into account
my very low pain tolerance. 



Unsure of what to do, I turned to my trusty side-kick Joe, for
advice.  "Just pull it like a band-aid" he said, a smile splattered over his
face.


I took a deep breath and gave a quick tug.  I was freed from the
hanging paper and left with a bloody upper lip.  That is how sticky my
saliva is. 


Now I am ponder, in another world, that if I lick my hands I will be able to smack them
against walls and pull myself up. I could climb walls and hang from the ceiling: I would
be the Sticky Savior.

So cool and tight, lyrical, kinda poetic, but not pretentious. Glad I found this gem. Sorry I'm so late to the party!

Your gift is that you keep it simple. Fast in and fast out. That is the new way of writing. NICE!
