The Power of the Nag or, Power Nagging

*e*'s 17th question is "What is my super power?" I did this quickly, for me anyway, squeezing in just a little time this afternoon and this evening. I took a few shots of myself - first time using the automatic timer on my camera. I've noticed lately that there are very few pictures of me, the main reason is that I don't think I am very photogenic and am usually horrified to see the results. Kind of like hearing your own voice on recorded tape - do I really sound like that?! I think, do I really look like that?! So I figured since nobody else would see these shots unless I chose, I did some crazy things. I then went over to and did more crazy things. I started with this shot and befunkied it with the "inkify" button. I think it looks a bit like I Love Lucy. Much later in the day, I asked Riley what he thought my super power was. Oddly enough, he hadn't seen what I had done on the tag so far, I just dropped the question casually into conversation (you can ask that kind of question casually to a six-year old). His answer really fit the front of the tag, I was so surprised. As I've journalled it onto the back of the card, I had asked him on the heels of making him eat a carrot so his answer was, "nagging". He redeemed himself later by saying he thinks my super power is "love". I think I'll keep him.


Morning hair. Love morning hair (on him).

P.S. Found two more pennies today, at separate locations. Something is definitely afoot.
