If you could go invisible for a day, what would you do? This is something I have wished was a possibility ever since I was a little girl. I spent a lot of time walking and riding my bike back then, and as I journeyed through my town to visit my friends, go to the library, and go to school, I would go past all kinds of houses. I used to wish I could be invisible just to see the insides of all those houses—to see the floorplans, the colors of the walls, the furniture, how everything was arranged, just everything. I didn’t want to peer into the personal business of the inhabitants—I just wanted to tour through as if it was part of a model home tour. I was often rearranging the furniture in my room (my poor parents 😉 )—so I was interested in seeing how other homes and rooms were arranged, what colors the walls were, what the rugs, floors, and carpeting were like, what the curtains were like, etc. I could go on and on….oops! I already did! In the town where I first had this wish (to be invisible) there were some larger older homes near the lake and beach in the town. Now those were some very cool looking [from the exterior anyway] homes. They were 3 stories because the 3rd floor attics even had bedrooms–full floor attics….they had screened in front and back porches and a front and back staircase inside the homes….so magical looking. Can you see why I wanted to turn invisible and explore the inside?
