It’s a bit of a long walk back from Sam’s schoolbus dropoff, but ’twas a gorgeous sunshining sort of day, so walk we did.. He even did a grand job of it, not collapsing-
-in his usual dramatic fashion until I stopped a few blocks from home to photograph a spectacularly lumpish cherry tree.
You’ll be glad to hear we made it home, despite the alien spaceship landing site cleverly disguised as a roundabout construction circle-fortunately my son is an expert at such egregious alien subterfuge and so we were able to nonchalantly circumnavigate the spurious construction and thus avoid becoming an extraterrestrial’s extra credit science project.
Phew! I can’t imagine what they’d think of the human race if they took us as typical examples!
Of course, if they were a scouting force for an invasion, perhaps it would have dissuaded them-when Sam started randomly exploding.
