One minute you are shopping with your wife; she’s by your side or just a couple of feet away, then suddenly ‘Poof’, she’s gone.
In the blink of an eye your wife has completely disappeared, nowhere to be seen. You hunt high and low, walk the aisles, and then just as suddenly she’s there, in front of you.
I was remarking to my neighbour about the phenomenon, asking if he had experienced it.
“All the time, mate, especially in supermarkets and clothes shops. You know how they do it, don’t you?”
“Err, no”, I replied.
“A cloak of invisibility. They slip it on in shops when, just for a second your attention is diverted, and that’s it; gone, nowhere to be seen. The other day it was 40 minutes before she took it off and re-appeared!”
