The fellow with the Lemony Snicket complex tagged me to provide my superpower of choice.
Oh hey, why not, right?
If I could have any super power, I’d want to be able to understand and speak every and any language fluently, from Klingon to Swahili, and definitely Babytalk.
There is nothing as frustrating as being unable to communicate effectively with another intelligent human being. (OK, that might not apply to Klingon. [/meanness for the day]) Language, though beautiful as a representative of individual cultures, is a great barrier in our ever-shrinking world (etc etc) and a headache to many who would love to do good (or evil) far from home.
And if I could understand all languages, just think of all the travel opportunities that would open up!
OK, I’d still need to be able to afford the tickets, but as a person who is fluent in everything, I’d be in high demand by every international corporation/organization not to mention a whole lot of tired mothers, so I don’t think that would be a problem.
People to tag: hm…
