When I were but five or six my family went out for a Sunday walk but I elected not to go.
Killing time I explored my mothers dressing table and found a bottle of Ponds vanishing cream.
Having heard the Invisible Man serial on our radiogram I liberally smeared it on all visible parts then when I heard the family approaching went and stood in the hallway to test it out.
Was most disappointed when they said "Hello Goggy"(my family nickname)and walked straight past me.


  1. Two charming ladies! I presume the one on the left will freeze and the one on the right will disappear!

  2. I loved your story. When I was a little girl I never could understand why it was called vanishing cream!
    Thanks for stopping at my blog, you may want to check as the one you're following is just awards, so I seldom post to it.
    Thank you and have a lovely day.
    Sunny :)

  3. Oh Gee, what a lovely insight into the little Gerald!
    I DO remember though thinking the same thing would happen if I spread it on me, but I never dared to find out. You are so brave.

    Love Granny
