The Garage Door Superpower
I have three sons: Riley, Jacob, and Louis who love to play hide and seek. These kids have a hyperactive imagination and they pretend to have superpowers which they use in many games they play.
Jacob and Louis often make fun of Riley because he always loses. They are not aware that their mom is watching them play.
One day they were playing hide and seek all over the house, including the garage. For 12 consecutive rounds, Riley is still the incompetent one. While he was looking for his brothers in the backyard up to the garage, he felt tired and stared at the garage door.
Then the garage door, pulled up
Riley was shocked that his superpowers worked so he yelled at his brothers so they can witness it. They are all startled every time Riley tries to control the door.
“Let me try!” said Jacob. But it didn’t work.
“My turn!” said Louis. Still nothing happened.
“The superpower only works for kids who seek during the game.” Their mom interrupted.
From then on, everyone takes turns playing the seeker not knowing that mom is secretly controlling the automatic garage door while they play.
