None, whatsoever

Yesterday's post about religious leaders having superpowers reminded me of a bumper sticker that says "I make milk, what's your superpower?" Whenever I see it I think she has it all wrong: Her real superpower is that she makes babies. Live ones, I assume, since she is breastfeeding.

I have no superpowers. I made milk once, shortly after the miscarriage. I was horrified. My body had failed miserably in sustaining the pregnancy, but happily kept going onto step two. I don't count that incident as a superpower. The milk was gone after two days.

I can solve the Rubik's cube. Is that a superpower? No? Yeah, I thought so.
