Things I know I shouldn’t want. But….

Do other people have these? Things you wonder about, wish you could experience/do/conquer, but know you probably shouldn’t?

One is a blizzard. I think I would like to be in one.  A blizzard.  I was caught in a blizzard in 2016.  It sounds cool.  I think I was in a white-out one time, for a few minutes.  I picture a blizzard as a bigger version of that.  A soft fluffy flurry of gentle snowflakes, enveloping you from every angle. I’m guessing since people are freaking out about the storm on the east coast of the US, that’s not an accurate description.  It probably would sand blast off my manicure.

Another thing I imagine experiencing is parachuting. Seeing the horizon, the curve of the earth, the landscape down below, all so soothing and at peace. But in reality, I know I would promptly crap my pants the minute I was out in the sky. That is if they could even pry my fingers off the airplane door. Or I would pass out. Or barf. Or all of the above. No, definitely all of the above.

I’ve also thought  a lot about acquiring a super-power.  Which I’m assuming is just one of those things you need to be born with.  Unless I get bit by something radioactive.  We do have a nuclear power plant, so that’s still a possibility.  But I only want a super power if I get to pick.  What if you wake up one morning, and it’s a crappy one?  Shooting lightning bolts out of your eyes.  Not so interested.  But having super-human speed, now we’re talking.  I could do all the housework in 1/10th of the time.  Arrive everywhere EARLY.  It would be glorious.

But finally, there is one thing I’ve dreamed about having, that I know I wouldn’t regret.  Singing on key.  Not just on key, but being able to really belt one out.   All the notes.  Like a pro.  Able to sing any song out there.  Although not to be a professional singer, I just want the ability for my own entertainment.   Wherever I go, just start singing  my favorites.  Who wouldn’t want to hear a cover of Enter Sandman during rush hour on the subway?  Magical moments, just waiting to be made.
