Zany – A Six Sentence Story

Possible Rain

It was a mistake telling George about those aliens who wanted me to hop on board their flying saucer for some zany experiments.

George explained to me that my aliens either were delusions or they were demons monkeying with me and he didn’t care which I picked as long as I didn’t believe there were actual aliens out there since any rational person knows they couldn’t exist and they wouldn’t exist if they wanted to.

He’s usually right, and so I picked the demonic monkeys.

That’s when a flying saucer popped in front of us and a squeaky voiced alien asked George if he would like to hop in for some nice experiments.

I gave them both an all-knowing smile.

As George hopped in he told me I would have to gaslight myself until he got back.

  1. Nicely done. The joke truly was on George, non? 😀 Can’t help but think our protagonist might have been in on it, lol

    Liked. the pacing and hook at the end. (I am constantly amazed at what the people around here manage to do with only six sentences.)
    Fun, Six

  3. I think there might be more to this story based on “I gave them both an all-knowing smile.”
    What would be a “nice experiment” conducted by an alien?
    You may need to continue this SSS with another one.
    Well done.
