(Wo)Man Skills



What skill or ability could you possess that would make you a better man or woman?

Jackie Briggs: Patience—I have none. Now, beat it.

Manda Bull: I would like to be able to levitate up the three flights of stairs to my office. Being able to apparate would also be nice, for those spur-of-the-moment vacations.

Ben Rosch: Patience and understanding. Oh, and the ability to bend metal with my mind.

Derek Jones: Jedi mind tricks. God knows how much that would help me out at my job.

Julie Erickson: If I could physically have the ability to turn my body into an adult-beverage dispenser, I’m positive it would make me a better woman.

Lia Pretorius: I think most of us already possess the ability to make ourselves better people in numerous ways. The skill is tapping into it.

Bryan Mannos: The power to see through solid monologue.

Jesse James Burnitt: I wish I could be more empathic and less of a megalomaniacal narcissist. The more I see that trait surface in myself and others, the uglier it looks.

Jeff Reese: The power of invisibility so that I could spy on—er ... I mean, the power of flight, so that I could save people.

Sarah Bailey: Not bein’ a hater.
