I lay on my back and got my breath back. I tried to move but my whole body ached so I closed my eyes and had a nap.
Aliens Don’t Like…
- Being chased by llamas
- Star Wars movies
- Photographs of Wildebeest
- Darth Vadar
- Heavy Metal Music
- Drive-in Movies
- Black Holes
When I woke up I could move again and I made my way to the latrine to check myself out in the mirror. I looked like I had been BBQ’d in green olive oil and I had bruises all down my chest.
My legs had been shaved and my hair had been put in curlers. My eyelashes were permed and my nails had been painted. I didn’t know what to do, where to turn.
Luckily it was still night time and everyone else was fast asleep so I was able to grab some clothes out of my tent and took a bike and cycled back into town for a shower and a change of clothes before heading back to camp before sun-up.
I don’t know why but all my memories of Johnny had been wiped and all the memories of all the guys in my unit had been too! Nobody mentioned Johnny and I never thought about him until Christmas when I went home and Mom asked where my little brother was. It all came back to me in a rush and I ran to the top of the hill and called out into the sky for Johnny.
Of course I got no reply but it hasn’t stopped me from trying to find him through the years.
I have never been taken away by aliens again. And I have never found Johnny.
But to this day I believe that if he had wanted to come back he would have – maybe he’s happy where he is – and maybe Elvis is there with him.
I have devoted the rest of my life to trapping aliens and I know all their tricks. Just wait until I get my hands on that Mr. Dorsey – he looks like he’d know a thing or two about green tentacles and Moon Monkies…
