I am a super hero. I am a super hero who cannot control his powers, however. I know this to be true, because, at times, with no warning, I become entirely invisible. That's right: invisible! In spite of riding a bright yellow cruiser with big, wrap-around fenders and chrome bullet-light, people cannot see me. If it were only one or two, I might suspect it was their inattention, poor eyesight or malicious dislike of cyclists. But, since it is seemingly everyone who cannot see me, I must conclude it is me who is invisible. Don't get me wrong; it's not their fault: they step into the bike lane from between two parked cars and they look in my direction, but my big, bright bike, my big, bright light and my big, bright jacket have become transparent. Before I realize I have developed these awesome and formidable powers and consider whether I should use them for good or evil, I first ring my big, loud bell and guess what? It apparently is unable to be heard! Fortunately, I have mortal powers that merely hint at my super powers and I employ a series of maneuvres that are similar to a balloon flitting about the room when the air is rushing out of it and I avoid a collision. I continue my ride, wide-eyed and aware that while I may possess super powers, I am likely just as susceptible to death as I am when I am visible and, in fact, I am courting disaster by being so near to so many vehicles while completely unseen by the fine, attentive and respectful motorists who appreciate their privelege on the road. It is my invisibility I curse when they suddenly decide to turn right without signalling: well, my invisibility and the fact that the high-end automobile manufacturers like BMW, Mercedes Benz, Jaguar and Porsche, among others,fail to install signal indicators and functioning right-hand-side mirrors on their vehicles. I consider writing to the car companies to complain but fear my pen may contain invisible ink and they'll think some jerk caused the death of a tree just to send them a blank piece of paper. Finally, I arrive home, well aware I am still a super hero for my heart is beating faster than any other human's and I have safelty negotiated traffic that would have killed any average man. Now, does anyone have any idea what super-hero name I should give myself, whether I should use my powers to help those who can't help themselves or become a heinous villain. And finally, where do you buy a super-hero cape from?
