“A little on the nose, wouldn’t you say?”

“Ha! Universe over. Seems we all think the same way.”

“Right? We’d better focus on the tour. What’s she saying?”

“Honestly, I know more than this guide. It’s embarrassing.”

“Oh, you’ve studied Earth then. Gee, you’ve never mentioned.”

“Ha ha very funny. Okay, so I’ve told you a few times since we got here.”

“Hey, I’m not arguing. You’ve studied Earth for centuries. I know. Let’s sneak off and explore on our own.”

“But the guide.”

“I trust you more! Let’s find a real human.”

“Disguise belt switched on? Okay, let’s go.”

  1. I’m sure they’re going to tease the human when they find one

  2. Their topurguide seems to know the funniest places on earth, nice tale.

  3. Even aliens dislike their politicians it seems. Glad they have our sense of humor too though! 😀

  4. I want this disguise belt! Fun story, Laurie.

  5. Good way of making the point that we all mistrust our politicians! I’m sure they’ll have more fun exploring without the guide. And they’re not likely to get into difficulties – after all, Earth is officially ‘Mostly harmless’!

  6. Dear Laurie,

    That explains everything. Politicians are really aliens disguised as humans. Good one.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  7. Hey! Do they know Zing and Zang? The four of them would have a blast 🙂

  8. Well done, Laurie. I need one of those buttons for instant disguise. 🙂

  9. I love the story and I love the comments also 🙂
