Last night, I re-read part of the book, “The Invisible Man”, by H.G. Wells and it got me to wondering about something. In the book, at the end, (spoiler), the Invisible Man dies and becomes visible once more. Of course, he still came back to star in dozens of movies, stories, etc, but that’s beside the point. In the original novel, he died. End of story. But during the story, when explaining how he became invisible, there was talk of a cat. The cat was captured and experimented on and used as a test subject. The cat became invisible except for the eyes. And then, it managed to escape into the city. So what happened to that cat? Is there still, somewhere in fiction land, a pair of reddish eyes wandering around, meowing loudly and scaring the crap out of people? Can you imagine walking out into your yard, hearing the sounds of a cat meowing, but when you look around, you see nothing but a pair of eyes glaring at you. Nothing else. That’s kind of creepy. So what happened to the invisible cat? I want to know…
As for today’s post, which would be Day 16, I’m going to cheat a little bit and just do “Survey Says”, with a very long and random survey. I was out and about all day and never really had the chance to sit down properly and write. It’s almost 10:00pm now and the day is nearly over. I’ll do this long survey, let it count for today and start fresh tomorrow. Doesn’t that sound like a plan? Let’s do it…
