Overheard: Aliens on Main Street?

October 12, 2010

Pamdemonium today launches “Overheard,” a new category for stuff that finds its way into my ears and simply must be shared. Many of these posts will be brief; some will require a bit more context.

There goes the neighborhood!

They will appear as often as I overhear really amazing or odd things, so I’ll need to get out of the house more. Technically, “Overheard” would be a subcategory of “Who Needs Fiction — You can’t make this stuff up,” but I haven’t started that category yet.

In the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport during my stroll to the next plane, a man behind me with a Bluetooth rig in his ear was speaking on his fancy phone.

Overheard: “No, the aliens would live in a separate town, sort of like a witness relocation program.”

My mistake was turning to look at the guy and getting caught. He toned down the volume, which made me sad.

Love this! Maybe he was some kind of television executive. Or knows something we don’t.

Thanks, Hollie. If a TV exec, he is now busted by all 30 regular Pamdemonium readers. If knows something we don’t, I guess we should consider ourselves warned!

do i see a typo?

Bless you, you did. OVERHEAD would be an entirely different sort of category. Many thanks. Watch out for the green people, though I’m guessing “they’ll” relocate them to places smaller than Charlotte or Nashville. Maybe somewhere in the mountains.

Maybe he is watching the new television series, The Event. K and I are watching, and it is good!

Or maybe he’s writing it! I haven’t seen it yet but my sister likes it, too.

The aliens will live in Roswell, GA if they land east of the Mississippi and Roswell NM if they are west. Are there other towns named Roswell I wonder, probably and they can take over all these towns. Course the “47 crash” took place near corona new mexico not Roswell, the remains were brought to Roswell. Hmmm makes you wonder what could be in Corona beer…
