“Whatsit thing on top?”

“The avian statue? Perhaps a God of some sort. Fertility? Apparently, they worship weekly.”

“Shhhhhh, don’t speak too loud, remember what the tour guide said. They don’t know we’re here. If they find out, they’ll react in violence. That’s how they deal with the unexplained.”

“I still can’t believe we got tickets. One in a zillion chance. You have to take as many holosnaps as you can for the children.”

“I am dear, I am. Ohhh that sign. My translation earwig says Farmers Market.”

“Ohhh, do you think they have fried Farmer legs? I’m rather peckish.”

  1. There’s always one joker in every tour group, isn’t there?

  2. Interesting story. Also spooky. Well done.

  3. Fun story, Laurie, with misunderstandings galore to spice things up!

  4. Hmmm… methinks they will be disappointed by the lunch offerings…

  5. Bear permalink

    “Fried farmer’s legs” – yuck! I can just (krinkles nose) smell them. A mix of manure and earth with a smattering of cream… Ohhh, noooo…. not that vision…. Great story! LOL!

  6. Fried farmers legs! I love it!

  7. Make sure you peel off the wellington boots before you cook those farmers legs. Fun stuck, ah ignorance is bliss.

  8. Great lines throughout. I love those alien tourists having got one of the rare tickets to Earth. And Farmer’s leg… maybe it’ll be a future market, something to invest in… 😉

    • Oh yes a whole franchise of fried farmers! Stores of every planet. Tho, it’s not a growing market so they’ll have to breed them

  9. Dear Laurie,

    Got that right about them acting violently to anything they don’t understand. Fun last line.



  10. I’m afraid fried farmer legs would be a bit tough and stringy 🙂

  11. Tourists are tourists, it would see. Even the invisible ones from Amdromeda. Maybe they should try the “elephant ears” or “beaver tail” pastries.

  12. Hey, that explains the feeling I get of being watched. Such a clever story, right down to the fried farmer’s legs (haha)!

  13. Strangers in a strange land are bound to make mistakes… I love the idea of invisible ETs on safari (as long as they aren’t like The Predator!)

  14. LOL at Farmer’s legs. Delightfully whimsical story!
