“You wouldn’a believed it.”

“Sir, I am asking you to tell me what happened. What did you see?”

“Freak’n gray things, green things I dunno. Bout waist high, right? So these beings, they zoom this cigar ship right through me freak’n greenhouse.”

“I see. Sir, is there any thing you want to tell me about the contents of that greenhouse before we inspect it.”

“No siree. It’s like I said. It’s ‘em aliens.”

“Are there any plants in that greenhouse, sir?”

“Well, yeah-ah no. Nope. No sir.”

Seconds later the two officers run from the greenhouse screaming.

“I told ‘em.”

  1. You know, I wouldn’t have believed him either

  2. Oops! He tried to tell them…

  3. Sometimes people just don’t listen!

  4. Some people just give off that sense that they are telling fibs… In his defense, he really did try to tell them…

  5. Good fun Laurie, you can see why they had their doubts!

  6. Life is just hell when aliens decide to move in and take over your green house. I know exactly how he feels. I have had a swarm of bees decide to use my garden cherry tree as a conjuration point. I had to get the local bee keep in to take them away. It took him a week!

    • Nooooooooooo

      I have an unwanted mouse in the roof so I know how you feel. Doesn’t even pay rent!

  7. Aliens! I like it!

  8. I can hear it now, “that’s what they all say.” Fun story, Laurie.

  9. sometimes people just don’t listen or they just think they know best – great story 🙂

  10. Hahah, that was fun and now I have this image of running and screaming cops in my head. He did try to tell them…

  11. Dear Laurie,

    He did try to tell them. Some people don’t listen.



  12. Aliens, huh? Different from my little guys. Zing and Zang probably would have run screaming, too 🙂

  13. Funny and scary at the same time. Makes me wonder what they left behind after taking the plants. Seeds of other things that are sprouting? Yipes.
