You like me! Of course, you probably don't know me very well.

This morning I was on my way to work, and I saw something in the sky.

I’m pretty sure that something was an asteroid. I suspect it was carrying aliens, although I have no proof.

I’m serious, you guys. I am so serious that I drew you a picture.

Now, it’s not exactly perfect. For the yellow, imagine cloudy white, and for the red, imagine like a dark bluish shadow in the middle of the cloudy white. (What? I did a presentation for hundreds of people using stick figures one time. This is as good as it gets. Also, the app I used doesn’t have white.)

So, anyway, I was driving down the street and I saw this thing up in the sky at about sixty degrees, and it was moving fast and down. It was falling, basically. I called Crockett and told him to run outside and look, but by the time I’d gotten him properly oriented it was too low.

Then it was gone, and I forgot about it until just now.  However, a brief internet search appears to indicate that Denver hasn’t been invaded, or if it has it’s happening in a very orderly fashion. Probably someone would have mentioned an alien-less asteroid, too, huh?

Basically I have no idea what it was that I saw, but I refuse to believe that it was nothing. (Crockett asked if it was a weather balloon, which means it was definitely aliens.) That’s how they get you. (‘They’ who, Emma? Got me.) We’re all so reasonable all the time, and it allows the amazing to slip under our radar.

Not this time, ‘they’. I saw an asteroid, aliens, or both this morning. Reason be damned.

PS – Someone left a very unhappy comment for me yesterday (they were unhappy, not me). My favorite part was the opening. “I don’t normally read your blog for the same reason I don’t watch reality tv. Your vanity and pretension are so absurdly high that they almost appear scripted. I get that that is somewhat the point of your blog, but I’ve met you in person and sadly life imitates art way too closely. ”

    That totally happened to me once!!! I used to lay on top of the motorhome at night and just stare up at the sky and I totally saw space ships, all the time. I think it’s awesome. Ovs we’re not the only ones… I mean, duh.

    Also, technically, one does script oneself, right? It’s clearly not someone else telling you what to say, do, think – why would they want to give all that awesome to someone else (you) and miss out on all the credit?!?!

    Sometimes I do wish I had a script writer, though. Preferably Amy Sherman Palladino. I bet she would have had funnier things to say about the aliens.

    I just started reading your blog and it is hilarious. Also, in regards to the hater comment, they were bothered enough to comment. Don’t you kind of love that? I mean it was probably the nurse you talked about or your HR rep that organized the underhanded health evaluation, but either way, I kind of love when I can rile someone up. Maybe that is my contrarian nature but seriously, hate is better than apathy. At least you aren’t boring!
    p.s. my husband’s nickname for me is Biscuit.
