If I Could Talk To Animals


So I've been marathoning Misfits recently, yeah I know finally, and it got me thinking about what powers I'd like to have if I were in the series. If you haven't seen the series a huge storm happened and lots of people, including all of the main characters, got super powers. One was immortal, one can hear people's thoughts, one could turn back time, one could turn invisible, and the other could um make people want to have sex with her. I didn't understand the last one being a power really but since the first episode loads of other powers have been revealed including the ability to bring people back from the dead, spoiler alert they all end up being zombies and eating people so that's kinda a rubbish power. 

It reminded me of when we were kids and asked what our power would be if we had one and we always imagined ourselves with the ability to fly or have super human strength. I think if I were to get a power like this I'd want to be able to talk to animals, ya know like Eliza from The Wild Thornberrys, or Doctor Dolittle. Wouldn't that be awesome? 

I think first I'd want to just sit down with my little kitten Oliver and ask him a few questions, if I was treating him okay, did he want me to do anything differently, and that if he had a problem he could come talk to me now instead of screaming the house down. 

I might then take this as an opportunity to go through with my plans to volunteer at the zoo or the SPCA, using my powers for good. Obviously not shouting out to the world that I can talk to animals but you know helping the proper workers understand that hey this animal doesn't actually like carrots unlike his other cage mate and would love it if you gave him more celery. Something like that. 

Or I could finally be a foster mum for the SPCA like I had also planned to do at some point in my life. I could take care of the tiny wee kittens who had lost their mums and teach them how to be a kitty and let them tell me if they needed extra milk one day or needed a check up cuz they were feeling a little weird. 

Obviously there could be so much more I could do with these powers but I reckon it would be nice just to use them to help out everyday situations instead of going on the news yelling I CAN SPEAK TO ANIMALS!!!! 

What would you want to be your power, would you keep it low key or shout it out to the world? What would you want to do with it?
