“i’m am alien, anyway,” she said.
and i thought, so am i.
but then she left, and i had no opportunity to ask, which planet.
mine is neptune, just in case (!i). we are semi-crystalline life-forms, mostly telepathic, not particularly gregarious, however, curious to the utmost.
we have infiltrated this planet earth, and are studying the prevalent sentient life-forms here, they call themselves humans. many of them are quite illogical, unpredictable and simply strange. but that probably is the challenge of explorers, to live and understand the field.
so, next time we meet, i will try to ask. no alien should be left lonely, without a company of their own.
