This month’s word is flight, meaning “the act, manner, or power of flying” or “an act or instance of fleeing or running away; hasty departure”. Sorry it’s late, life is kinda distracting at the moment. And it’s very short, too, for the same reason.
I always thought it would be the coolest superpower. Just, y’know, speeding through the air, all alone, up above everything and everyone.
The reality is not like that.
It’s cold, the air is full of crap (and don’t get me started on the insects if you fly low), and I constantly get lost because it turns out I am not good at judging distances or recognising landmarks.
So yeah, I can fly, but the truth is, I’d rather take the bus.
