Invisible Dude

This morning I woke up invisible. It took a minute or two to get used to. Wife and kids away. Wow!

It’s freakin’ 50° outside, but I don’t care. Glass and dog shit on the sidewalk Who cares? I’m headed for that house nearby no one talks about. I knock on the door. The lady opens up and I slip by her.

For an hour, I watch girls do odd things with gentlemen. It gets boring rapidly.

Back on the street headed home, I bang into something hard. It’s another invisible person.

“Who is that?” I hear my wife say.

  1. I’ve always been fascinated by “Invisible Man” stories, but only two of them, one being the H.G. Wells original and the other a TV show from the early 2000s, addressed how someone could be invisible and also not be blind (Hint: look up how the eye works).

    1. Thanx, James. As I recall, Wells solved the problem by the Invisible One being almost an albino, but having pigmented eyes. There was a terrible TV series in, I think, the late Sixties, where the Invisible Man had Invisible Clothes. Boring! Everybody knows what they would do first if they were invisible.

      1. It was the late 1950s and it was a British TV show that ended up in syndication in the US in the mid-1960s, which is when I first saw it. I have the entire series on disc. 😉
