Synesthesia or Superpower?


 I have this power, it's kind of peculiar. Some would say  that it's downright weird,  but I think we've all got weird powers. Only a certain few, like myself, figure out their power within their lifetime.Even less share their's with others. So here's my rare power share.

 I can taste medications and food placed in mypalm. The bitterness of my first aspirin at school still makes me salivate to this day. When the nurse placed it in my hand, I puckered up like I had just french-kissed a lemon.

 Since that time, I could take any taste-filled object and pick out the various flavours and notes within. Whether it be a delectable fruit-filled scone, a scrumptious savory biscuit, or a super-sweet finagrin pill, I can determine the ingredients and the effects that it will have on my taste buds.

 I only use my powers for good, so I tend to wear gloves at times others would not. As I type to you, I am wearing the most supple of lambskin gloves.  Mmmmmmm,  lambskin tastes  good!

                                               What's  your power?


My cat's power keeps me laughing!

  1. That's a pretty cool power.

    I have the power to infuriate anyone within minutes of meeting me. Sometimes I can't even control it.

    1. It works especially well on my family. Probably because of the similar DNA.

    2. I didn't even know that was a power. Great luck on being able to use it for the greater good.

    1. A very underrated power. I'm glad someone has it, or we'd all be in trouble.

  3. My cat used to sleep in the bath but I don't think I've seen her in the sink. I don't think I'm yet to find my power, not a really unique one anyway, but I can be quite empathic at least. Your power sounds like it so easily has the potential to become a curse. Remember, with great power comes great responsibility.

    1. Yeah, he sleeps in the sink and drinks from the faucet as well.

      There has been times that I felt it was a curse, but I've had a pair of gloves around to not taste the yuck with my hands.

  4. Annoying the crap out of people and the ability to lie like a gypsy!

    1. I actually want at least one of those. I cannot lie worth a crud. Sometimes it is needed. And being able to annoy people that need it is uber useful.

  5. Sometimes when I hear a sound my ears prick up.

    I like to tell myself I have amazing hearing abilities.

  7. LOL cats find the weirdest spots to sleep, mine used to like the sink too, now he just scratches it for some reason and leaves.

    Super power hmmm, I can remember all, I can piece things together rather well and act like I'm psychic sometimes because I'm usually right..lol

    1. Those cats sure are peculiar. I've only met a handful of odd-ball dogs, but plenty of weird acting, neurotic cats.

      Intuition plus logic always seems to astound those that believe you can see the unseen. Cool use of your powers, Pat!

      Delete
    2. Yeah mine even open the cupboards and go to the top shelf to sleep, they are every where. Cats surely are more peculiar than dogs.

      Glad you like the book too.

  8. This power reminds me of a book.. ca't remember its name. Oh well. My power is

    1. I wish you knew the name. I'd see if the author goes through the same thing I do.

      Haha, your power is instantaneous brevity?

  9. LOL @D4

    Shocky, remind me that when we meet someday that I refrain from shaking your hand like I usually do with everyone I meet. 'Cuz yeaaaaah, plenty of other ways to taste me, and our friendship ain't THAT kind of a friendship. :D

    I think there's an actual concept for this power of yours, but damned if I remember what it is!

    My power? My power is MAXIMUM, at all times, even when injured or feelin' bad. No matter what I do, it's gonna get embiggened to the next level.

    Even if I'm not the best, I'm a scary competitor, and you will respect why by the end of the competition.

    Writing? Fighting? Loving?

    Yeah. I'm on that.

    MAXIMUM.

    AT ALL LEVELS!!!!!

    Also I'm obscenely healthy and am gifted with equally obscenely high levels of energy, but you KNOW that already.

    So...I reckon if I had to name my power, it'd be "Passion."

    Yeah. Hatred. Rage. Love. Kindness.

    Passionate at all of 'em. <3

    1. Some good power-sets there. I would have a hard time dealing with all of the maximum levels, but I'm glad you have a handle on it.

  10. The most powerful power is your mind

    ReplyDelete
  11. Wow. This is the plot of the X-Men movies and comics coming to fruition. You must be some kind of mutant super hero. I have not discovered my power yet. I sure hope it is something good, like maybe being able to use telekinetic mind powers to change turds into hot dogs.

    1. If you can change turds into hot dogs, then I'll try to make my flatulence into buns. Can't have a hot-dog without buns.

  12. Thats really crazy, I couldn't imagine walking on a public bus and having to put your hands on everything. Although a visit to the grocery store would be quite delightful.

    1. This is what gloves are for. Even if I don't wear gloves, I'm usually fine. I only taste with the center of my palm. My fingers somehow lack the buds.

      Delete
  13. Oh, that sounds AWFUL!!!!!! There are so many things that we need to do with out hands...I can't imagine having to taste it. Bleh, gag, barf!!!

    My powers? From 2-3am I turn pink. The most lovely shade of bright stinking pink! It's magnificent to see. :)

    1. I would be lying if I said I tasted everything. It only occurs in the center of my palm. I should have been more specific.

      Bright pink? Can I start calling you "the human night-light"? I'd have you around for mood lighting, for sure.

      Delete
  14. Wow, that sounds awesome to me unlike Jax. If I had that skill I could make a living in French restaurants doing shows tasting food with palm touch.
    My powers - I am usually like inverse of Agent Smith, I try to absord skills of the people I am with. Mine keeps changing, I sometimes have excellent memory power and rest of the period I feel like I have selective amnesia. I dont know honestly my powers and dont know whether I have any as well.

    1. Yay! You got the 'palm' bit. Keep looking for your powers. This day they were of observation, and a pretty fine skill at that.

  15. That's pretty cool! My super power is that my brain believes anything I tell it too. In a toilet once, I could hear the woman in the next cubicle making noises and shuffling and was convicted she was pooping and so I actually thought I could smell poop, seriously! Turns out she was breast feeding. Why she was breas feeding in a toilet cubicle I have no bloody idea!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The power of suggestion is strong within you. Breast-feeding in a bathroom stall? I'm sure there has to be a good explanation, because what loving mother would subject themselves and their child to the germ-filled quarters of a rest-room to feed?

  16. Thats really crazy! My power could be "eat" books!
    Well...that's not a power but is something xD

    1. If you learned from the books you ate, I'd say it was a very useful power. I'd start eating Zagat's today.

  17. As a foodie, I'm completely envious of your super power. Mine, meanwhile, is that I can draw mildly funny cartoons with the tiny clit-looking mouse on a laptop.

    1. Your power has brought you many accolades, and will bring much more attention than my mild-mannered foodie power.

      I have a laptop(they insist on calling it a notebook, but I see no spirals). I've got a trackpad that I'd trade for a toris mouse, any day.

  18. That is a strange power for sure.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks. I pride myself on the strange, if you couldn't tell already. Thanks for dropping in.

      Delete
  19. Strange indeed! Is this true? If I could do that I would "sample" all the food at the buffet to decide if I want some or not.

    By the way, ask and you shall receive. You have made your shameful promotions debut today... come check it out!

    Replies
    1. Haha! That would require you to stick your hand in the serving dishes. I'm sure you'd get some strange looks after tasting just a few of the offerings.

      Thanks for including me. I really like the representation. It's everything I was hoping for!

      Delete
  20. Ha, it's called the power of smell. You must have a good one.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ha. I can see how you would relate my power with smell, but I can taste things placed in my palm. With or without nose-plugs. My sense of smell is just under my sense of intuition, which is pretty powerful, too.

  21. That's a fascinating power and one I'd never heard about before. I can't think of any super or even mediocre powers on my part. But I can assure that anything chocolatey is delicious before I taste it.

    Be well.

  22. This is the second time I've met a blogger with synesthesia and my first reaction is that it's way cool - however, I guess living with it might get complicated. Still, it's pretty neat that you could decide what to each just by picking it up! As far as body quirks go - this is one I wouldn't mind having so much!

    1. Yeah, it is pretty exciting to pick up something with a filling and tell others what's inside.

  23. Exhibit A:

    You don't own a dog by any chance? Cleaning up after it when out for a walk would not be a good time.

    My super power would be my ability to avoid doing work at work. Like Exhibit A for example...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You're right. I do not own a dog. If I cleaned up after it, I'd make sure none of the waste touched my palm.

      Haha, I didn't know procrastination was a power. If I'd have been privy to that info, I'd have included it.

      I'll lend you my gloves if you want to take care of the dog doo now.

    1. You have chops like Wolverine? I always knew you were cool, but that raises the bar about three adamantium blades higher.

      We could have a scar off, but you may beat me as most of mine are invisible.

  27. I can taste what other people have been eating with my nose. It's amazing how many people claim it's dog food. Not all it's cracked up to be. Oh and I can wiggle my ears.

    1. This makes me chuckle as well as ask the next question. Why would anyone,(other than me) admit to eating dog food?

      I've heard that there are people who can tune raido stations in just by wiggling their ears. Is this true with your power?

    2. Most people blame it on the dog.

  29. So do things start "tasting funny" when you pee???

    1. Not really, because I either do the no-hands method I perfected as a youth, or I utilize my non-tastebud having fingertips.

      Thanks for stopping by.

    1. You're either powerless, or your power is absolute honesty. Either way, it's a great attribute that should be celebrated.

  31. My power allows me to sleep again even after I just woke up from a 12 hour sleep. This causes me to feel like I skipped a whole day. I guess you could consider this ability as time-traveling a day to the future since my whole day felt like a minute.
