It’s called a skill because you have to work at it.

Screenshot from an actual ad that a nearby sailing school sent me:

like invisibility

“Sailing, like invisibility, is a skill that can last a lifetime”.

Baffled.  I’m just baffled.

PS.  I showed this to Victor and he pointed out that they did say that invisibility is a “skill” rather than a natural talent,  so technically if I haven’t mastered turning myself invisible it’s obviously because I don’t want it bad enough.  Awesome.

PPS.  Victor just read this and insisted that he never said that I didn’t want to be invisible, but that I was just “not applying myself, as usual“.  And when he said “as usual” he lifted his eyebrow and stared at all the dishes in the sink.  Then I’m all “Sorry. I guess I’ve been too busy focusing on levitation and defending myself from dark wizards, asshole” and then he stopped talking to me because I was “being ridiculous”.  Then I used a powerful spell to get rid of all the dirty dishes.  And by “powerful spell” I mean I opened up the backdoor and threw them all out on the yard.  I’m like a goddamn sorceress.

Comment of the day: I specially liked the part where sailing leaves you in such a posttraumatic stress state (much like when you come out of an invisible spell -I suppose-) that you will “find yourself spending afternoons wondering about wind direction, hoisting makeshift mainsails in the garage”. Do they provide the hard, brain damaging drugs during the lessons too?

  1. I find the “pulling cleats and winches out of your pajama pants’ drawstring more than you usually do” a bit alarming, too. Or maybe that’s the trick. MAYBE — just maybe — invisibility (the skill!) is somehow linked to the keeping of cleats and winches in your drawstrings. But wait, how can you keep anything IN a drawstring? If I taught English, which I don’t and never will, I’d use this paragraph as an example of how you should not write paragraphs on any topic while you are really really high.

    Hang on, what kind of boat is normally powered by a NUCLEAR REACTOR?

  2. Haha. This made me laugh.
    I need to start working on my powers, I totally didn’t realize that if I just really wanted it badly enough & focused hard enough it would happen. If I was required to do the dishes, I might try that sorcery move of yours but alas someone else does those (and it’s not the dishwasher)…

  3. So invisibility is just like riding a bicycle? AWESOME! I have only mastered invisibility to some extent, i.e. it only works on certain people, such as my husband when I am doing household chores. He can see the TV through me which makes it very convenient since I don’t block his view when I am invisible. I’d like to learn the dish spell. Please let me know how I may enroll. Many thanks.

  4. Oh, you’ve just made me so happy. I thought invisibility was a power one was born with. You’ve given me hope. No longer will I have to lock myself in the bathroom to hide from my children.

  5. If it’s so easy for Victor, I demand a how to YouTube of it. *waits impatiently, tapping foot,*

    Oh, I see. Your time would be better applied doing dishes so they don’t break when Jenny flings them out the back door? Yeah.

    I’m off to try to find a way to make this invisible thing happen. There are ALL KINDS of awesome things to be done when no one can see you. Like spying on your kids at school to learn what they’re REALLY saying. Or messing up your hateful coworker’s stuff and watching her try to explain it. Oooh, yes. Invisibility has become a top priority now.

  8. I often wish my mode of transportation didn’t require a nuclear reactor…Because, yes, it would be sublime. But at the end of the day I would MUCH prefer to have a super power. I caught the last 30 minutes of a truly horrible movie called something like Super Power High…or something equally ridiculous…and there was this one girl who could get plants to eat people. Actually I think it was a kid’s movie…so the plants didn’t actually EAT them. But if I had that power, I would train my plants to actually chew. But good luck with that sailing Jenny.

  9. “pulling cleats and winches out of your pajama pants’ drawstring more than you usually do” The fuck? This sounds like a highly contagious venereal disease and you should stay away from this supposed sailing school for the rest of your life unless cleats and winches are really sailing terms for nautical knots or sail types or something.

  10. Makes me wonder who the hell approved that ad. Someone who is obviously now trying to make themselves appear invisible.

    I think that if there was some sort of invisibility “school” instead of sailing school they wouldn’t even have to advertise. Every mother in the world would want in. Can you even imagine what you could do with that skill set? FREAK YOUR CHILDREN OUT. That is what! We are talking FUN FOR DAYS HERE PEOPLE.

  11. Dear Bloggess: What on earth I was doing with my life before I stumbled upon your website–I mean, BESIDES practicing invisibility, duh, which should be the first thing they teach you at Mom Camp, never mind the whole “open cervix, flower of life” groan chant–it wasn’t worth it. Thank you. No, really.

  12. Much like in parenting, nobody ever notices the demons you HAVE overcome – like, my children were *actually fed* supper last night, and *no Dark Wizards* got through. They just notice the things you don’t accomplish, like “is your son wearing his sister’s ‘B.U.M. Girl’ t-shirt?” and “why can’t you invisiblize yourself yet?”

  13. Sailing, like invisibility, is a skill that can last a lifetime? WTF? First, invisibility doesn’t last a lifetime. It comes in short bursts and never works at Target (where they also frown on naked people shoplifting.) I do however have to agree that turning a non-nuclear powered boat to the right or left is as difficult as turning invisible.

  15. A lot of married woman claim they are invisible to their husbands. Consider yourself lucky that you are not invisible to Vic. Then again maybe Vic should consider himself unlucky

  16. Invisibility never seems to work out the way you want to. Did you ever notice how when people become invisible they always seem to become visible at the worst possible time? What if you really had to go to the bathroom and you were driving and driving and driving, and you came up to this really nice house that looked like it belonged to a rich family, so you know their bathroom is clean, but probably so rich that they’re kind of stuck up and wouldn’t let you use their bathroom if you went up and rang the doorbell and asked, even if you were doing the peepee dance? So you think “Oh hey, I’ll just walk up to their house (invisible of course), go inside, to the bathroom, and then sneak out before anyone notices.”

    So you put your perfect plan into action and you’re just about to their bathroom when you turn back to being visible and their five year old catches you peepeee dancing your way into the bathroom, screams, and you have to climb out the bathroom window and down a tree, all while peeing because you never got time to use the bathroom, and now you have to drive home with no pants or underwear on, twigs and leaves in your hair, and when your boyfriend notices all of this, acts like you were out cheating on him with some guy who is apparently like Tarzan and likes to do it in the woods. And he loses even more respect for you because you smell like urine.

    See, invisibility is totally an over-rated skill.

  17. How about SELECTIVE invisibility of other objects, meaning your dishes may or may not actually be there? Then you can tel ol’ Victor, “What, are you looking at the INVISIBLE dishes again?”
    .-= SupaCoo´s last blog ..I Believe… =-.

  18. I too, have a huge issue with “find yourself spending afternoons …pulling cleats and winches out of your pajama pants…more than you usually do'”…FIRST OFF – I don’t ever pull football shoes or pirate sluts out of my pajama pants. Ever. Can you imagine the stench that would come from that combination? SECOND – who does? I want to meet said people and punch them in the neck. Twice.

    Also, I have a dog who can make himself invisible. Example:
    Me: RUSTY!!! Did you just fuckin’ barf on my chair?
    Rusty: *closes eyes*
    Me: Damnit, where the fuck did you go you little bastard?
    .-= Jenn´s last blog ..I’ve Never Posted About… =-.

  19. I’ve been working on my invisibility skills like 3 and half years. So far I have managed to make parts of myself invisible which is disconcerting at best. It sucks when I’m walking around thinking I’m invisible and it turns out only my thigh is missing and people just look at you like some sort of half-wit ghost and start saying hail-Mary’s. Not really the reaction I’m going for.

    Once my penis disappeared for two whole days and I was like, WTF!! But that was after I joined the Polar Bear club that one winter so it may not have been my invisibility powers at work but the worst case of shrinkage ever—the point is the only person it managed to freak out was me, which isn’t cool cause I thought at least my wife would be concerned but she went all, “Don’t worry, I’m sure it’ll be fine, you’re such a baby…blah blah blah.”

    So yeah, you can see I need to get this sorted out, so do they give classes on invisibility too or just the sailing?

  20. because this has *everything* to do with your post today, I just wanted to inform you that “whore” is the buzzword for today. Like, I’m getting a lot of satisfaction out of using it. it’s almost as good as “skank”. but “skank” is like heroin. you have to be careful you don’t use it too much and o.d. “whore” is more like weed. safe for everyday use….and by safe I mean, mildly offensive and bad for you, but satisfying all the same.

    I just thought you of all people would appreciate this.

    Actually, now that I think about it, this *does* have everything to do with your post. Because using the word “whore” is much like invisibility because it too requires skill. The skill is what separates the $5 bjs from the $50 bjs…the walmart fishnets from the fredericks fishnets. So really, I’m totally on top of things and this comment is VERY appropriate.

  21. wow.

    im not sure which one makes my jaw drop farther… victor or the total douchebag that wrote the ad??? lmao.

    i agree with Miss Rosa tho….. mind reading would be way better.

  23. I hate to break the news to you, but invisibility isn’t a skill — it’s a gift that you’re born with. You wouldn’t know it to look at her, but my wife is invisible. And invisibility isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. If she’s standing at a counter, the people behind the counter look right through her. When she attends a workshop, the presenters hand out papers to everyone but her (even if she’s jumping up and down to get their attention). I didn’t believe her when she first told me this, but it’s true. I’ve helpfully offered to paint her so that people would be more likely to notice her, but she says she’d rather be invisible. Go figure.

  26. Long ago, when I was a chubby high school teen, there were many times when I really thought I was invisible. But I can honestly say it does NOT last a lifetime, because now that I’m older and minus 20 pounds and clean up nice, I am NOT invisible even when I want to be. So that school is false advertising. I don’t know that I’d take lessons from them….unless they are free. I’d take anything if it’s free.

  29. Powerful spell indeed. You’re my favorite sorceress plus, if it’s raining there like it is here (Tow, rhymes with ‘cow’, in central Texas) then nature will tend to your dishes. That makes you a Green Sorceress and anybody who’s been paying attention knows that you’re a genuine Super Mom and Sex Goddess. My mind is all gang agley at the marvel of your dazzling diversity. If you were my daughter my friends would be sick to death of your name. As it is, they just raise their eyes heavenward and sigh whenever you’re mentioned, well, those who don’t get a lecherous grin but when most of your friends are musicians you expect such things. They’re totally intimidated by women who’re their own age. It’s sad really, but that’s another story…

  30. I flunked out of sailing school when I kept hollering, “How do make this fucking thing turn left?!”

    Also. Invisibility. Doesn’t everybody just use a cloaking device? It worked for William Shatner.

  31. I lived with a guy who put his dirty dishes in paper grocery bags under the sink. When he ran out of clean dishes, he would drive to the beach to wash them.

  32. *Turning the boat to port or starboard is pretty good, too*

    UM……Clearly this is actually a porn ad. ‘sailing’ is obviously bondage and ‘invisibility’ is blindfolded oral.

  33. For true invisibility you need a nuclear reactor – – – – – they obviously know nothing at all.

    But as for invisibility being a skill . . . . . not really. You’re either born with it, or you aren’t.
    My cousin was invisible. No one ever saw him. I thought I did, once, but I was not sure.
    He was really good.

  34. i KNEW it. at least all this trying to be invisible stuff wasn’t a complete waste. i must not be applying myself enough. i’ll keep working on it and let you know how it goes.

  36. Sailing and invisibility last a lifetime? What good is invisibility if you can’t become visible for the rest of your life? And who the fuck wants to go to a school that teaches you to strand yourself in the ocean until you die? No thank you, magic sailboat school.

  37. My husband mentioned separate bank accounts today. I was just about to poison one thing in the fridge when I happened upon this post. I think throwing the dishes in the backyard would piss my husband off more and make me feel better. Killing two birds with one stone awesome!

  38. Slackers. My kids mastered invisibility years ago. All I have to screech is “Who did this?” and all 3 disappear.

  39. I put this ad in the Pirate Translator you posted awhiles back and this is what came out

    “Sailin’, like invisibility, be a skill that can last a lifetime, ‘n a jaunt on th’ Gulf be th’ perfect way to get started. Don’t be surprised if, after ye lesson, ye find yourself spendin’ afternoons wonderin’ ’bout wind direction, hoistin’ makeshift mainsails in th’ garage, ‘n pullin’ cleats ‘n winches out ‘o ye pyjama knickers’ drawstrin’ more than ye usually do. Glidin’ gracefully ‘n quietly across th’ ocean in a boat that needs no batteries, engine, or nuclear reactor be a sublime experience. Turnin’ th’ boat to port or starboard be pretty jolly, too.”

    For some reason…this unbaffles me. Maybe because if I spent conversation with a person who spoke pirate and said this to me I’d sit there with ‘Present Face’ and go…’Yeah….like, Totally…..I agree.’

  40. You have to read between the lines, Jenny. This add is just another salvo in the ancient “Pirates vs. Ninjas” war that’s been plaguing our society for generations. You see, the pirates (a.k.a. “sailing school instructors”) are trying to recruit people away from the ninja schools, where invisibility is taught in sophomore year. If freshmen can be convinced that sailing is just as valuable a skill as invisibility then maybe some of those undecideds will choose Pirate School, and the balance of power will shift in the pirates’ favour.

  41. Funny, that’s exactly what my husband says while raising his eyebrows towards the sink of dishes. I scoff at him and stay planted in the chair. The kitchen always gets cleaned … somehow.

  42. It’s that bloody Harry Potter. Until the movie of the last book comes out we will all have to live with references to invisibility and wands and hexes and horcruxes and griffins and a host of other silly things.
    I guess the sailing club wanted to appear ever-so-British-upper-class-private-school, so they made the Harry Potter reference.
    Here’s my idea of sailing:
    A boat that’s so big that you can’t feel the swell. A chef. A hot tub. A crew. A helicopter. A man you walk up to and say “Take us to the Bahamas, Captain.”
    I dont care which side is port and which side is starboard.

  44. I had to come back because of the “pulliing cleats and winches out of your pajama pants’ drawstring more than you usually do.” This suggests that I already pull cleats and winches out of my pajama pants and taking this class will make me do it more frequently. Well, Mr. Copywriter, I’ve allotted all the time I can to pulling winches out of my pajamas. 15 minutes a day. Any more than that and I get behind in my other invisible sailing duties, like hoisting my mainsail shirt and turning my computer steering wheel. You may be able to sail a real boat, but leave the imaginary sailing to the professionals. If I listen to you, I’ll never get to Unicornland.

    I HAVE, however, been successful developing my powers of indivisibility.

    Well, except for the multiple personalities.

  49. When I think of all the hours I spent NOT practicing my invisibility based on my assumption that it was a gift reserved for the genetically mutated or delusional, only to now learn that it’s a skill and I could have been invisible when I wanted to if I’d only tried harder to perfect this skill, I want to scream.

    I can think of at least ten instances off the top of my head that I should have been invisible for: big zit at prom, cheating on geography quiz in 8th grade, losing my virginity…you get the idea.

  50. I totally want to be invisible, so when my 3 year old is having a moment and screaming “MOMMYYYY MOMMMYYYY” for me, I can instantly go invisible and see what he *really* wants, and whether or not I actually want to be found.

    Also, levitating would save me a lot of time. I’m rather short and I always need a stool to reach anything, it’s rather annoying and time consuming. If I had to choose one, I’d probably go with levitating… but I’d rather have both, please.

    Also, I’d of thrown the dishes *at* Victor, not on the lawn. Like, the dishes I’d whip at him like a frisbee and be like, “Hey, see that? I *do* have magical powers.”

  51. Jenny,
    I surely hope you’re earning a good living from this blog. You know Dooce and Mr. Dooce quit their day jobs when she had roughly this amount of traffic, this number of comments to a post.

    You’re hilarious but you scare me a little. Which makes your blog even more entertaining.

    And if you aren’t using fifties as kindling and seeing how far you can blow cocaine into the air with a single fart, you should hire someone to re-do your layout and get some ads. Or post about some cool product and pretend the product didn’t just arrive at your doorstep in a box filled with cash. Kinda like Dooce does.

    And really, my reasons for my wanting you to be rich are self serving. I want to see what happens when you have more money than you can spend. I think it would make your blog even funnier.

  52. OMG I can learn how to be invisible?! Why the fuck didn’t anyone tell me?! I place the blame for this squarely at Victor’s feet, because obviously he already knew about this and didn’t share the news. Not cool man. And nobody likes passive agressiveness, sir. If you want to tell Jenny to do the dishes, don’t raise your brows, just do them yourself. Lead by example my friend, lead by example.
