My wife says she can hear the neighbors and she heard them again last night. I tell her that she has superpowers and I’m impressed with her because I obviously don’t have them since I don’t hear our neighbors. She tells me I’m jealous of her and I tell her I can’t argue with that statement and she says good thing and I say having superpowers is a good thing. She goes back to her crossword puzzle and asks what to me. Did you say something to me? I try to answer telepathically so I can have my own superpower.
