Friday Question from the Book of Questions If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one ability or quality, what would it be?
I would want patience. I struggle with trying to be more patient on a daily basis.

More than anything else, I would love the ability to fall asleep at will. My deepest envy is reserved for the well-rested.

I still want to fly! Magical and practical all at once.

Can my ability be to get another ability each day I wake up?

Probably the same as my be natively fluent in any language I encounter.
That'll make me really valuable when our alien overlords finally get here.

Have a brain that can actually remember stuff. I've spent my entire life not being able to remember phone numbers, addresses, names, faces, basically anything. I'm seriously lucky that I can remember my own phone number and can barely remember my wife's. I don't know my son's (even though I pay for it) or the landline number. If I have to read a number and type it in, I have to do it by a max of 2 or 3 digits because I can't retain 7 digits for even 15 seconds.

The ability to self-promote. A little bit. I mean, it's fraught, and I wouldn't want to go all the way to the other side and be a dick about it. But there are things that I am good at, and I just expect people to figure that our and praise or reward me, but that doesn't really just happen, of course.

To only need four hours sleep a night. There just aren't enough hours.

The flip side of Pips. I'd like to be able to get more than 3 or 4 hours of sleep.

Or maybe a 3rd hand. That way I could scratch both cats and still take a drink or scroll the screen or whatever.

To be able to carry a tune. Not even to be a fantastic singer, just one that won't make cats flee in fear.

To make close to 6 figures while working 20 hrs a week

Less sleep would be nice. I need at least seven a night or I'm pretty much useless the next day.

Better memory for names and faces. It's really a handicap, working in retail, to be so faceblind.
posted by workerant 23 September | 17:10
Memory here, too. I can remember stupid useless arcane facts about irrelevant things, but struggle to remember peoples' names, my kids' birthdays, phone numbers (even my own, sometimes), to get milk on the way home etc.

Teleportation, always. It has the benefits of most other abilities with none of the downsides.
