Lists: Day Four

In the Corner

I know I told you a long time ago that I'd explain my alien abductee theory. I'm not going to do that today.

Years ago, when I told Raw and Casey my stories, they were a little freaked out. But they both remember and will occasionally send me websites with alien information or tell me stories they've heard about aliens. Now and then, Casey will call me up with some information.

"There's this hat you can make that will keep the aliens out of your head! I'll send it to you if I can figure out how!"

Sometimes they even send me mean birthday cards like this:

Best Birthday Card Ever.

So last night, when I went to bed and saw a spaceship outside my window, I of course sent Casey a text message.

No. It's not like there was a giant hovering disc right in the parking lot. But up in the southwest sky, there was a really bright pulsating light!

I think I freaked Casey out a little, too. He responded right away.

>Put on your hat!

>You never made me one!

Apparently, this was too important for mere text messaging, so Casey called. I explained to him what I was seeing and he could see it from Newton.

I know that at this point, you're going to tell me it was just a star. But you're totally wrong for several reasons.

1. This thing appeared out of nowhere. I've never seen a star there before. I'm sure I would've noticed, even though I just recently started sleeping with the blinds open.
2. It was triangular in shape. Casey couldn't see the triangle so it might have been just a warp in my window. But probably not.
3. The triangle was white and blue with a red light at the top. The aliens must be patriotic.
4. There was definitely a very rhythmic pattern to the "twinkling." I think the aliens were trying to hypnotize me. No way they got me on that one! I fell asleep!
5. I woke up with the distinct feeling that I'd been abducted.

"Why didn't you make a helmet?" Casey asked.

"Because you never sent me the link!"

"Oh. I forgot." He was laughing!

"That's fine! You just know that when I'm getting probed tonight, it's your name I'll be cursing!"
