Invisible Bucket List

Harry Potter had an Invisibility Cloak. Bilbo Baggins had The One Ring. I have a pair of glasses that I can’t find … but what would you do with the power of Invisibility?


Would you save the world or tear it down?
Would you be upset that the press never print a good picture of you ?
Here are ten suggestions from our Invisible Bucket List while you are pondering …  
1. Run for election on the grounds that you will govern with transparency.


2. Sneak into bedrooms just  before dawn and carefully lie down on top of the covers, so that when the sleeper wakes, they think that they are too weak to lift the comforter.
Then when they tense for that last really big try, roll to the side so their momentum causes them to fall out of bed.

3. Use ordinary jewelery to trick dwarfs into going on fake quests.
4. Bellow instructions while at church.
5. Pointlessly photo-bomb people.
6. Charlie Brown the football at a Super Bowl.
7. Follow politicians around so I could whisper in their ears and pretend to be their consciences.
8. Use an invisible touch to annoy Phil Collins.
9. Make cookery shows impossible by hanging around the sets and adding extra ingredients to recipes.
10. Be naked in all the above situations.

Nick Jackson was born in the UK, the land of gunpowder tea, but moved to America to escape exploding cups of tea. He now lives in Florida where he attempts come to terms with concepts such as how flat everything is and whether the alligator is a golfer's natural predator. Nick has written for Monkey Pickles from the beginning, as established in Cern, Switzerland, with the discovery of the long-sought Monkey Pickle Particle. He is somewhat "freaked out" by writing in the third person. Nick is motivated to write for the pleasure of the experience rather than to pay the bills, but he does recognize that pleasure is still not an acceptable method of payment in most respectable retail outlets. He hopes to raise a smile or two before being ejected from the store.
