As a child I often wished I could become invisible like one of the superheroes in my comic magazines.
Now I know how. Just get on a mobility scooter.
It is astonishing to me how I appear to be invisible to people when on my mobility scooter in my local shopping centre.
I have learned to drive slowly and have to continually expect people to almost walk right into me. On one occasion, I had a woman drag her young child behind my scooter while I was reversing. How I missed them is a miracle.
Being able to use a mobility scooter when in the shopping centre is a real relief, as I can't walk or stand for too long - my legs start to give way. The first time this happened and I almost collapsed, a shopping centre security person got a wheelchair for me and then wheeled me to Shopmobility. For those who don't know, you can borrow a mobility scooter or wheelchair (ordinary or powered) from them for free.
Since then I can now enjoy my visits to the shopping centre, except that I have had to realise that I am all but invisible, and have to drive very carefully.
