We’re still really excited with our summer of sport and now we’ve got the Paralympics. This is the year it’s meant to be the biggest ever, with tickets virtually sold out and the profile of Paralympic athletes growing. All in our own backyard too. After Team GB’s fantastic medal haul at the Olympics we will be screaming our support for our Paralympians with equal fervour.
We can’t wait to meet the Super Humans, as the adverts keep inviting us to do, and this got the Adopt A Word team thinking again.
A Superhuman is defined as having powers above and beyond those of mankind – so basically it’s like having a super power!
It’s competition time again! Our Paralympians all have reached above and beyond in their chosen sport and we all have that potential too.
So if you had to pick out your Super Power what would it be? We’re not talking necromancy or X-ray vision here but the thing that’s a slightly random talent that you have, for example
Are you a Procrastinator extraordinaire? Able to put off any task until it is way, way too late.
Can you say Tongue Twisters without a single stutter?
Or perhaps you are the master of mismatched socks!
We want to know what your super power is, the sillier the better and preferably able to be summed up in one word, and you could win yourself your own Super Power T-shirt so everyone can know how amazing you really are!
To enter all you have to do is post your suggestion as a comment below, along with your email address or Twitter user name before midday BST on 9th September 2012. Adopt a Word’s very own Games Committee will reconvene to choose the superpower that they can relate to the most. It just can’t be smutty, illegal or unhygienic.
The fun will also be happening on Twitter @adoptaword and we’d love you to join in there too, but don’t forget to use the hash tag #superhuman.
