I found my untapped Super Power in Pennsylvania


Does this caterpillar make my hand look fat?


The retreat was great, but what really surprised me was that I discovered my untapped Super Power while I was there.

As it turns out, I'm a caterpillar rescuer!

On average, I saved at least 20 caterpilars that had wandered into peril, whether it was in my cabin, or if they were dangling from a spider web, I was there to save them! (insert super hero trumpet here)

Thanks to me, there will be more butterflies in PA this year.

Super-speed! (I wish! lol)

I rescued a bunch of earthworms a couple of weekends ago. No butterflies saved - but the ground will be better - teehee

You'd have your work cut out for you here...there have been so many caterpillars on the sidewalk, my dog keeps trying to eat them!
Cute picture!

Julia, that brings back memories for me. My friends and I would save worms on the playground at recess before the boys could squash them. :0)

Adrienne, ah, yes. . . my arch enemy, the hungry caterpillar eatting dog! ;0)

I have nothing to add about caterpillars, but I'm thrilled that you went to the Highlights retreat! Thanks for sharing what you learned.

LOL! Every spring as we walk the dog, my son and I rescue caterpillars from the road. I don't know why they crawl into the road. It's not green. It's very dangerous. So we put them back in the flower beds and hope that we've managed to do our part to save their population in some small way :)

Go Caterpillar Rescuer Christy! My friends and I had a caterpillar club when we were in fifth grade or so. My daughter now likes to find caterpillars. We have a cocoon in our butterfly habitat right now!
I took the test, my super power was manipulating fire. I'm not so sure about that one. I'd like to have the super power of teleportation, we spend so much time on road trips!

Bish Denham said...

More butterflies...or moths. Either way, more possible food for possible birds. (Oh, I'm so mean!)

Oh and my superpower is Mind Reading because I am, among other things, brilliant, insightful and intuitive.

Carrie Harris said...

According to the quiz, I should have electricity manipulation.

But personally, I think I should have the power of the supersnarf.

C.R. Evers said...

Thnx MG!!! and Thnx for stopping by my blog too!

Sherrie, you're a girl after my own heart. And I promise, if we ever go the the beach together, I won't give bread to the pigeons the make the come. ;0)

Kelly, manipulating fire is good. Embrace your power!!!! ;0)

Bish, well, I suppose an echo-friendly girl like you HAS to appreciate the food chain. ~sigh~

Carrie, surprisingly enough, there is a fine line between electricity manipulation and the power of supersnarf. The comparison is scary, really.

Jacqui said...

Like Bish, I am a mind reader. Do I have to even blog, then? Can't I just send telepathy?

Ian Sands said...

People, people. listen...

first off, not all caterpillars turn into butterflies. some are just boring moths that will eventually get into your closet and eat your grandmother's clothing. Why do you think she buys so many mothballs?

Second, inchworms eat like 200 times their weight in plants and all that eating reduces the plant life on the planet which results in more global warming!

Third, and most importantly, I have a really great garlic and butter inchworm recipe.. actually, it's for mealworms but I'm sure it translates.

fun quiz! i'm a mind reader. :)

why are caterpillars so keen on offing themselves?

Vijaya said...

I've been scrolling down and reading all your posts ... it's been much too long. I'm so happy you got to have a writing retreat.

I love caterpillars ... we routinely capture them and see what they turn into. Always interesting.

As to my superpowers, I'm all fire and dash!

Kelly H-Y said...

Way to go, Caterpillar Rescue Woman!
Apparently, mine would be mind-reading! Go figure!

PJ Hoover said...

Oh, I totally remember the caterpillars from PA this time of year.
I'll go with flying.

Shelli said...

dont know if you believe in totem animals but here is what caterpilars mean: Caterpillars symbolize transformation. When caterpillar totem presents itself know that a transformative change will occur. The transformation from caterpillar to a butterfly is nothing short of magical.

Lilfix said...

I just took the quiz and I found out that manipulating fire is my superpower...

Hubs would agree that I get a little hot under the collar when I'm mad...grin...

C.R. Evers said...

Jacqui, you still have to blog, because we can't read your mind. We need your witt in normal form.

Ian, or should I say "Anti-Caterpillar man, you're still sore because the last time we battled a top the Empire State Buliding, I laughed like an Anime Cartoon when you used your power of Freeze Stream and said "Ice to meet you."

Martha, unfortunatly, though they're cute, they're friggin' dumb.

Vijaya, Thnx for reading. Our Caterpillars always die when we catch them. (shhh. don't tell anyone. It would ruin my rep.)
Go, Fire and Dash!!!!!


PJ, I totally thought you'd be telekenisis! or Teleportation. Or is is it Telephone? Dang these multi-syllable words.

Shelli, I could use one of those super-cool changes. Bring it on!!! Bay-bay!

Lilfix, (I know you're really Brenda. Cause, I'm smart like that.)

I saw it all on Facebook. Maybe I'm clairvoyant too!!!! Yippee!

Edith said...

hahaha! I went on a hike the other day & saw a butterfly trapped in a spiderweb. I decided not to save it, but then on the way back, I noticed it had escaped on it's own. Yay strong butterfly who will go on to birth other strong butterflies, yay!

Ian Sands said...

escaped on it's own.... but for some reason the spider looked fatter... so strange.

Rena said...

I got the electricity thing on the quiz -- probably from choosing to be struck by lightning. Silly me.

I don't know if I'd have any super powers, but people are starting to call me Dr. Doolittle -- LOL!

Christina Farley said...

You are quite the super girl!
