Waiting for the phone to ring (Friday Fictioneers)

The order of the day was ice cream. As much of it as I could shovel into my mouth. The news was saturated with reports of the alien ship. I haven’t been called in yet but it’s only a matter of time. While I wait, I’ve stocked up on what we might need in the event of a full-scale incursion. Invasion? Who knows? Maybe they just want to party? Maybe it’s a chill “Whoa dudes, we are super high, and your planet could be a way cool mediation retreat, mind if we stay a spell?”

Probably not.

Where’s that spoon?

This is a Friday Fictioneers Prompt

Success! You're on the list.
  1. We’ll all eat rocky road as we wait for Armageddon. What else could we do?

  2. Taking comfort by eating Ice Cream before the alien confrontation seems like a panic reaction. For aliens you could read, a visit from a long lost aunt with a passion for Haagen Daz. Shovel it down before she and her tribe arrives.

  3. Wouldn’t that make a nice change – some chilled aliens just looking to relax. I’d like to see that film! 🙂 Meanwhile, pass the ice cream.

    • Right… so would I… Very Shaggy from Scoobie Doo feel.
      Hey man, pass the… whatcha call it? bloodsauce? I’m feeling, whoa, like totally chill man, what a great planet, the sky is like soooo blue. Oh ketchup, made from a vegetable? Totally righteous dudes and dudettes

  4. Good call. Eat ice cream as the world falls.

  5. A nice piece of whimsy. I like the idea of cool aliens looking for a retreat location where they can meditate.

  6. Dear Laurie,

    Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we face alien invasion. Nicely served.

    Live long and prosper,


  7. So much easier to escape from reality when one has a container of one’s favourite ice cream…

  8. I can see you have your priorities straight in stocking up for the possible invasion 😉

    …save the chocolate. Wouldn’t it be a sight chilling out with aliens?

  10. Forget water, milk, bread, or toilet paper—just stock up on ice cream! If we’re going to die, we may as well enjoy what we can!

  11. And likely you won’t have to care about the danger of cholesterol either… just eat as much as you like
