Day 3 prompt:
Superpower Day. If you had a superpower – what would it be? How would you use it?

I love thinking about superpowers.  There are so many things I would love to be able to do.  But if I had to pick one right this minuet it would be the power to breathe underwater.  I don't know why that is the first thing that came to mind.  Probably, because I have been thinking about home a lot lately and I miss the blue waters of the Marshall Islands.  I loved the ocean.  And I only say loved, because every beach I have been to since leaving has been such a disappointment.  I won't lie, as much as I loved being able to see underwater, I was equally scared out of my mind.  And the worst part was coming up for air because I was always afraid of what would be there when I went back down.

I guess part of wanting this superpower would be to help me face my fears.  I could have learned to dive, but the whole thought of only having as much oxygen as the tank can hold always freaked me out.  So this way, I could just be free to swim for how ever long I please.  It would be nice.  To be back in the ocean and be able to explore it to my hearts content.  Yes, if I could have one superpower today, that's what I would pick.  Ask me again tomorrow and who knows what I would choose.
