Snap

Sometimes I miss Lugano so much.  How could you not?

When I was a little kid, there was a TV show called Out of This World where a girl could snap her fingers and stop time.  She went around fixing things before people knew what was going on and that sort of thing.  She could also snap her way to another place.  Of all the super powers I’ve ever seen (and I use the word “seen” loosely), that’s the set I envy most.

I could be in Lugano right now, dipping my toes in the lake.  Jumping in sounds good, but that’s melted snow from the Alps… no thanks!  And once there was no more gelato to be had and no more perfect views to enjoy, I could be back at work–nothing missed, no responsibility points lost, no budget blown to smithereens.  Oh, if only I were an 80’s television character.  Naturally, I would also do good for mankind with my mad snapping skills.

P.S.  The grammar check just told me that “mankind” is bias language.  Shame on me.

  1. If I could be an 80s television character it would totally be MacGyver. Why stop time when you can get out of any situation with any combo of items?

    • MacGyver might be able to build an airplane out of paperclips and get to Switzerland, but can he do it without using any vacation days at his day job? Or is being amazing his day job? I’ll admit that I’ve never seen an episode of MacGyver. (Sorry if questioning his perfection is some kind of blasphemy.)
