Have you ever thought about it, being invisible, I mean. Being able to walk about in crowds and yet remain, unseen? Wait, Iíve had another thought, youíll think it quite absurd, but what if when you speak out loud, no one appears to hear a word?

Itís possible, it happens, I know, it happens to me and not only on occasions but very frequently.

 
  Such as when I go out shopping, or just on my daily walk, shop assistants look right through me, look around, then begin to talk. They ignore me as I stand there purchase proffered in my hand. My request for service is ignored in shops throughout the land.

Itís possible, it happens I know, it happens to me and not only on occasions but very frequently.
 
  Take the interval at the theatre bar, even though I get there first, the ensuing crowd catch the barmanís eye

whilst I am left to die of thirst. In the restaurant after a disastrous show wherein I had reserved a seat, the Maitre Dí could not remember me so there was no place reserved to eat.
 
  It is possible, it happens I know, it happens to me and not only on occasions but very frequently.

Itís different now, they want volunteers to help out with this and that. Suddenly they remember me, ďHim with the dog and the funny hat.Ē I prefer invisibility, it travels hand in hand with peace. It brings with it a tranquillity that I do not wish to cease.
