Pan-dimensional absence

The warm evening sun shone low in a cloudless sky.

Without thinking, Peter dashed across the street, only narrowly avoiding a car, but its driver seemed not even to have noticed him.

Shaken, Peter wondered what had made him act so rashly. He must be tired.

He passed some neighbours, nodded a friendly “Hello”, but they ignored him.

A dog sniffed his leg and casually peed on it.

It was dawning on Peter that something was very wrong.

He felt flat and grey, as if his world had lost a dimension. He had become a shadow of his former self.

Peter will discover next that things get better from there.
As compensation, he now knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men.
And hes got what it takes to be a successful peeking Tom.

Very nice.

Yeah, but he won't be able to appear in public without being handed a guitar and forced to play Apache.

And I bet that's the first Hank Marvin reference they've ever had on here ;)

Aaah. It took a while (hours) but I get it now. The Shadows were just a little before my time :P

Yes. Plus, England's such a long way from Tynsdale.

Tynsdale sounds like such a nice place. I must go there sometime. :)

I can see I'm going to have to stamp on this typo before it becomes the bane of my life.

It's Tyneside. The place that gave the world Hank Marvin, Mark Knopffler, Sting, and mumble mumble mumble Jimmy Nail mumble mumble...

Also, Brendon Foster, Steve Cram, Johnathan Edwards and Mumble mumble mumble Gazza mumble mumble...

*Looks REALLY apologetic about that one*

WOW!
First time I've ever managed to typo an entire syllable!
:oops:

I wonder what a sentence typo would look like?

Keep at it. You'll work your way up to typoing War & Peace in its entirety.

What do they call that edition of the bible with the "Thou shalt commit adultery" typo?

Oh WOW! Does that mean you can speak in English while your lips move in Japanese? 8)
