Most people have done something in their lives that may classify as superhuman. Websters defines Superhuman as :exceeding normal human power, size, or capability…
I have a couple recent anecdotal stories about things that have happened to me that may classify in the superhuman realm, they all have to do with reflexes…Sorry I don’t have a story about lifting a truck off a baby, or walking on water…Here goes:
A week or so ago I was showing a friend my wedding band. I was standing with two other collegues as well. I took the band off and dropped it into the hand of said friend. As I did this I turned my head to talk to the collegue on my right.
The ring bounced off my friends hand and fell to the floor. At that instant, with my head turned to the right, my left hand swooped down so fast no one really saw it, and snatched the ring from under my friends hand.
His eyes got huge, as did my collegues, and he said, “Damn! how’d you do that? I barely even saw your arm and hand do that?”
I, equally amazed, said I hadn’t a clue as to how that just happened.
I was at the Pub with a few friends and my wife when a similar incident happened. Only this time potentially more damaging to my person. We were playing darts. My wife was up - she’s a very skilled thrower - I had my back turned to the board, a Boddington’s in my right hand and nothing but gestures in my left. I was not looking at my wife who just threw her third dart.
SMACK! - A brick. it came flying back at ME - something darts have a tendency to do on occasion, especially the light aluminum ones. And without knowing why my left had shot out and snatched the dart out of mid air befor it hit me. Again my friend said, “Holy sh*t! how’d you do that?”
My wife said, “OH HONEY!! ARE YOU OK? DID THAT HIT YOU?”
Then when she realized what had just happened she said, “You caught it?..wow good catch honey!”
I do not know how any of the things I described happened. If I were looking, I would at least have a partial explination…but I wasn’t…so I leave it to the universe to make it’s decision…I just hope I get informed…
