I SAW A UFO.
I was driving home from work tonight when I saw a bright white light to the left of the street. At first I misjudged the distance from the light to myself and thought maybe one of the houses in there had some weird floodlight I’d never noticed before, or something to that effect; then I realized that the light was in the sky.
I knew the position of the light was too strange for it to be the moon, although it was about that bright, so I thought, …Airplane?
It wasn’t an airplane, though; when I was able to look more closely at it, I saw between the blue, red, and white lights that the vehicle was actually triangular. My first thought was, “That kind of looks like an Imperial Cruiser….” No, I’m not delusional. I didn’t think it was an Imperial Cruiser; it just looked like one.
It was really big and really low, and seemed to just be hovering there. Then it flew out of sight, and back into sight again, and when I turned left on the next street, the ship started flying in that direction, very slowly. It flew across that street, and continued flying about parallel to ours.
When I turned right on our street, I could just see it over Publix, and that was my final glimpse of it.
I immediately went inside and said, “I saw a UFO.”
“Really?” Dad said.
“Yeah–it looked like an Imperial Cruiser.”
“Was it triangular?”
“Yes. Want to see it?”
He did, so he ran to get shoes, and my mom called, “If you get abducted, try to contact home somehow!”
“It’s okay, I’ve got my cell phone,” I said, as we dashed out the door.
The craft was, of course, gone that time around.
After we returned home, I went to stand outside in the driveway and called The Mormon, who did not immediately answer, so I left him the following message:
“I saw a UFO. And I’m not even kidding. Call me back for details.”
So…there’s that. I’m betting it was a stealth drone, since there is a base just a few miles away. So that’s pretty cool!
In other news, Spidermonkey has apparently broken up with Psychobrat, who, presumably, will be returning home at any moment–she’d been planning to spend the week at his house. I do feel kind of bad for her, despite how evil she is.
Nicole may have found someone to take the dog…finally. We’ll see what happens with that.
Here’s something funny: The other night, The Mormon told me he’d been flipping through stations and Seinfeld was on, so he’d stopped to watch it.
“Kramer was there, and…I think Jerry’s father?…Jerry Stiller….” he said.
“That’s George’s dad,” I said. “Were they selling raincoats?”
“As a matter of fact, they were.”
“And they were all mothy?”
“Yeah–they opened the box, and a moth flew out.”
“I’m quite proud of the fact that I was able to get that from ‘Kramer and Jerry Stiller’.”
“I’m very impressed, babe.”
I wrote three pages of my new book today! It’s moving right along. And I made this for you guys:
Just a little peek inside my mind! I’m planning to hit up the used bookstore one day very soon to grab some research materials.
