I don’t think i’ve drank water in about a week. If you cut me open you’ll find ashes in the shape of my kidneys & liver. Until it gets blown away by a wind gust…. like in vampire movies when a vamp dies by sunlight. yep…just like that.
When i was about 6 i tried to convince my sister (she was 11) that there was an extra terrestrial in our house. I told her i kept seeing this tiny green guy with red eyes that would hide behind our house plants. I’d even pretend I’d catched him watching us when i was telling her this.
After a while she probably believed me or just thought i was adopted. I never asked which she considered true for I had other businesses to attend to, like playing Super Mario & typing fancy letters to the Archie Fan Club.
I don’t know if i’ve ever told her about this. She’s probably reading this now. [Hi Cloud, i was kidding back then when i told you there was an alien in the house. Sorry if i scared you]
After that i went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for a two 2 paragraph book i wrote in 2nd grade having to do with that same alien. Maybe he WAS real!!
