Oh, no. Not again...
Wherever I'd ended up, pink tweed upholstery fabric was masquerading as the latest thing in twinset fabrics. Hornrim glasses seem to be de rigeur, too. I adjusted mine and walked down the path and away from the garishly coloured house, noting as I did so that the bushes could do with a trim.
As I approached what I assumed to be my car, a pale yellow sedan of some description - American, judging by its sheer size - I noticed a creepy old house on the hill at the end of the cul de sac.

"No. It's fallen down. It's on your waist now."

"To the right a bit..."

"Oh, half of it's fallen to your thigh."

"Oh no!" I exclaimed with an evil grin. "Your clothes have fallen off!"
P.S. Come back soon, Tim.
