I Became Briefly Invisible Today

I think 2015 will be the year where I develop my super-powers. Obviously, I must have them. All the ass-kicking super-hero women in the TV shows wear heels, I took a defensive shotgun class in 3-inch heels. Ergo, I must be a latent super-hero.


And today, I was briefly invisible. You see, in the office, we’ve got those fancy toilets with the sensor that can see you while you’re sitting there and then flushes the toilet when it can’t see you anymore.

It flushed today. While I was still sitting there. Logically, I must have become invisible. See, hypothesis + evidence = science!

  1. It’s usually the middle-aged women who complain about their invisibility. Of course, you’re not middle-aged. (And come to think of it, it doesn’t really sound like you’re complaining.)

    I’ll keep this in mind, though. If I see an empty dress at the supermarket, I’ll know it’s you.

      1. You’re not exposing anything: someone has to see you before there can be an infraction of the law.

        (I have thought about stuff like this entirely too much over the years.)

  2. No, you’re not invisible. The toilet saw you sitting there in 3-inch heels with a shotgun leaning against the partition, and wet itself in fear.


    PS: Will you be at Phlegmfest? Miss D. and I are coming down.

  3. Years ago, the facility where we used to teach EMS instructor courses had a bathroom with lights on a motion sensor.

    If you had to use any of the stalls, you were invisible to the motion sensor, and the lights shut off after 5 minutes.

    Nothing like duck walking out of a public bathroom stall and waving your arms frantically to get this lights to come back on, with your pants around your knees.

    1. all the more reason to carry a flashlight in your pocket!

      Been in many a power outage when the bathroom naturally has no windows. a small pocket flashlight aimed up does wonders for your marksmanship, not just when using a firearm

  4. Ha ha. Another funny blog post from a very insightful and genuine woman. I appreciate your regular posts very much. You see, I’m not the type of person that reads people’s blogs on the internet. I don’t really watch a lot of TV either or play video games. I like to read and play and write music. So it definitely says something about this website, that it would make me want to keep coming back to it so much. Congrats on your new-found super powers. And by the way, if you’re into ass-kicking superhero women, check out the new show “Agent Peggy Carter.”*****I also want to apologize for the rut I brew when I said those incendiary things in the “Meanwhile Ferguson Burns” blog post. Believe it or not, everything I’ve told you about myself thus far is indeed true, in terms of me being a young, recent college grad from NJ and studying economics. But the things I said previously to you in that post aren’t representative of who I am as a person. I’m not a keyboard jockey, but what I said certainly was cowardly as you pointed out. I denounce all violent forms of protest, and I think that the arsonists and looters who riot in response to the actions of police should be dealt with as swiftly as the way the terrorists in Paris were dealt with. What I said was totally wrong. I take back what I said, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me. Often in the heat of passion, I say things I regret – a grave flaw, to say the least. I hope you respond to this comment, and I look forward to more of your posts in the future.*****Did I mention I played the violin?

    1. Thank you, Mike. I forgive you.
      You had not mentioned that you play the violin. That’s cool. I majored in music, but I do not play any instruments.
      I will check out your links.

  5. Our mom used to always tell us to wear a hat when it was cold as we’d “lose 90% of our body’s heat” from our heads. We then asked if we played outside naked but for a hat “would we only be 10% cold?” Mom didn’t quite have a good answer for that.
