She can't fly, which would be cool, but my daughter's super power is still impressive.

My daughter made her own mask from paper, tape, marker, and string. I’m not sure what she was going for, but I think she looks legitimately creepy when wearing it.

I asked her if she is a superhero when wearing the mask. Her response:

“Daddy, you know me. I’m just Clara. But that’s pretty great, too.”

Even better than a superhero.

Unless she could fly and stuff. That would be better, but still.


My most useless super power

In addition to my fairly useful super powers is one that is no less extraordinary but useless. Whenever I wake up in the middle of the night, for whatever reason, I can accurately state the time within fifteen minutes of the actual time, and oftentimes much more accurately than that.

Every time, without exception.

How I manage this is a mystery to me.

But an even bigger mystery:

How am I ever going to use this super power to defeat evil?
