Not sure if I ever told you before, but I probably have, that I am a big Star Trek fan, right back to the old series - 'beam me up Scotty'.
Those of you who too love all things Star Trek will remember the cloaking device the Romulans had on their star ships.
Well sometimes I feel like I have my own personal cloaking device.
What is she on about? I hear you ask.
Well, I was raised to be polite, to be aware of others - not just their feelings, but that there are actually other human beings that populate the planet. Were you?
So why is it when I am at the shopping centre that people walk into me, in front of me, ram me with their trolleys, push in front of me at the teller machine or counter - I mean I must be wearing a cloaking device!! For people, I am not a small mouse, I am a large, well maybe even huge woman. I stand 5 foot 7 in my bare feet, I wear size ?? (well very large) clothes. You just can not say I am invisible at these proportions, and yet somehow I am. So 'beam me up Scotty' for I must be wearing my cloaking device yet again.
Because if that is not the fact, then I have to think we are becoming a society of ignorant, self centered individuals who are so focused on us and our needs that we no longer see others with our blinked view of life. Please tell me I am wrong. Please!!
