Crazy Town

So the other morning I was jerked out of deep sleep by a huge BOOM. I looked around, confused as the boom was followed by a weird rolling sensation. It felt like an earthquake. But … not quite. Alpha Man had left a half an hour before for his daily swim. I’d gotten out of the early exercise by telling him I was going to go for a hike with the dogs.

I totally lied. Unless you count dreaming about a hike…

Anyway, the boom. Youngest hadn’t even rolled over. But the dogs … the dogs were worked up, whining and frenetic to get outside. I shoved my feet into my Sorrels, which are big old winter boots for those of you who don’t live in the Arctic. Yes, I made quite a vision in my pj’s (tank and bootie shorts) and winter boots. I walked all the way around the house, thinking that what I’d heard was a tree falling and hitting the roof.

No tree.

Confused (not a new state for me), I went back to bed with my laptop to work. I checked the US Geological Survey. No seismic activity, so it hadn’t been an earthquake. And that’s when the news reports started rolling in. Rumor was that the Sierras had been hit by a meteor shower.

A meteor shower.

Only in Jill’s world, right? But no authority or agency stepped forward to confirm or deny. So I’m left with no choice but to decide that it’s an alien invasion cover up …

  1. Have to watch out for the aliens – they can be loud! I am glad to hear you & family are safe.

  2. They just had a quick blurb on CBS This Morning. Evidently a blogger was doing a blog and filmed it.

  3. Do you actually want us to believe that you went back to bed with your laptop to “work?” maybe you can fool your editor, but you can’t fool me! Tsk tsk

  4. Our news station did a report before it supposedly “hit”, not after, but of COURSE you felt something! And now you have something to put into a story. Works for me. :whistle:

    BTW, are these the same boots with the spider????

  5. Never a dull moment ! Hopefully that loud noise scared any spider that could’ve been in your boots ! 🙂

  6. Maybe the powers that be (what? I don’t know) decided to reward you for your last wonderful book – Accidently On Purpose with a serenade?

    You got a better explanation? Works for me……

  7. totally believe you!!! Really, what else could it be. Maybe PAUL is near you and needs some assitance!! He’s a fun loving alien.. just don’t let him drive!

  8. :unsure: I’m not sure what to believe!! Of COURSE I believe you…but the news media not so much. Where are the photos? Little green men :mrgreen: ? Maybe Alpha Man just trying to mess with you B-) …who knows. It IS a good story and you just stick to that!! :yahoo:

  9. There was a selfie video on my news this morning showing a meteor streaking through the sky behind the person. It was amazing. The anchors said you can see it but no one had confirmed it. They didn’t say where it was. So I believe you.

  10. hmmmm maybe it was the little green men .. maybe even they have had enough of the chaos in Washington DC … :yahoo: :yahoo:

  11. I do believe you Jill, whatever you say! A meteor shower sounds good to me, your story is so good I think you should put it in a book.. Love your stories and books!!
