Hey, guess what, I’ve just got a great new super power!
I was minding my own business, looking at Google Maps on the computer, when lightning hit the house and there was a power surge that caused a wee explosion, wrapped a zillion pixels around my face, and nearly blew my ears off.
‘Golly gosh’, I said (well, actually I paraphrase fairly significantly here), ‘this is worse than a night out in jolly old Auchenshuggle’, and – babloof! – there I was on the south side of London Road in Glasgow’s less-than-salubrious east end.
I admit that surprised me, so I conducted a few tentative experiments – a short trip to Inverness, a longer trip to Nice, then a week in Kos with my lady friend – and I confirmed I only had to say a place name in a certain way to be there, along with whoever I was touching at the time.
So I’m starting to ponder the possibilities, thinking that now I’m a superhero like Superman himself, Batman, Desperate Dan and guys like that, I could perform all sorts of noble deeds in the service of mankind.
Then I think ‘Nah, that’s not really my scene, I’ll just make a few bucks running a cheap tour racket’.
