the kryptonite to my super power

On a day when I was asked to reveal my superpowers, I found out that my kryptonite is lack of sleep.

My superpower is my ability to bounce back; my ability to see the sunshine ahead and the silver linings of every situation my tools.

But a consistent lack of sleep drains me of all my energy and sparkle; and the more they fade, the more lacklustre and frustrated I become until all I can do is fall helpless.

Fortunately, all superheros have back up’s or side-kicks.  And I am grateful for mine.  Mine is 6’5” and bears gifts of wine and promises of massage and makes do with leftovers for supper.

I hope my little superhero cub sleeps tonight.
