If you could have a superpower, what would it be? Mine would be flight (how could that EVER lose its lustre?) but I would also request a bolt-on superpower: the ability to never lose any of my stuff ever again (I always say if you want to drive me insane just hide my stuff. Try it and see. Actually, don’t). So dubiously prolific was I at losing things as a kid that whenever my mum visited a European church or cathedral, she’d light a candle or two for St Anthony on my behalf. St Anthony is the patron saint of finding lost things and Mum always laughed that I was massively in credit because she carried on lighting St Anthony candles way into my adulthood. St Anthony was born in Portugal, which accounts for these effigies all over Porto (albeit it in non-traditional colours). Maybe I should buy one before my credit runs out. What superpower and bolt-on would YOU have?
