Do you have friends who take ages to reply to you? Like between 48 hours to never. And then miraculously one day you get an almost instant reply, and you’re like “Whoa they love me!” but turns out it’s only coz they’re on the porcelain throne and have nothing better to do. OR WORSE – ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE PEOPLES???
Well. As it turns out, yours truly always gets instant replies. Only because I have a sixth sense for when my friends are making that long distance call, if you know what I mean.
We all have superpowers. It’s all a matter of whether you care to acknowledge them or not.
As a collective group of SuperSlugs, our special C-grade superpower is… dreaming up weird combinations of food and giving them glamorous names and fancy descriptions.
Such as Low-fat Carrot Vichyssoise topped with toasted sesame. On Twitter we even add a #superfood hashtag to it. We’re so relevant it hurts.
Then there’s the Homemade Chia Seeded Honey Yoghurt. Selling point? Homemade (yes we make our own yoghurt). And chia seeds, the latest fitness foodie craze. We know this because we read the Straits Times.
To further prove our C-grade superpower-ness, we held an innocuous mac & cheese hostage, pelleted it with hand-rolled meatballs, smited it with Marmite (of all things), and finally interrogated it with an egg and lots of mozzarella. It survived the ordeal, emerged victorious and is now known as a “Mac & Cheese with Muscle“.
Finally, you can’t go wrong with the Super Combo of Nutella, bananas and toasted almonds. Perfect as either a pre-run boost or post-run treat.
We summon our superpowers every week on Wednesday evening and they usually last through Sunday.
We’re looking for more people with C-grade superpowers to join our team of X-Slugs. We’ll be at the ST Jobs career fair this weekend 12-13 July, Booth E22 at MBS halls D & E. If you know someone whose superpowers are yet unrecognised and underdeveloped, sacrifice them to us. Or if nothing else, come say Hi to lovely Jo-anne Slug and affable Andrew Slug.

Alright, it’s time to go make some rain now. But if it pools again at Commonwealth – IT WASN’T ME!
