My Super Power

My Super Power published on 1 Comment on My Super Power

I have a super power.  I can’t walk through walls, make myself invisible or move things with my mind.  My super power is much more subtle than that.  I have the ability to stop any television series from being renewed merely by liking it a lot and watching it on a regular basis.Continue reading My Super Power
