How To Tell

After years of films, television, and literature telling the public that aliens were coming, people really started believing it. When Space Force was announced, everyone cheered. Finally, someone was doing something to protect us from the greatest threat humans have ever known…the alien! Obviously, they exist right? There could be millions of cybermen up there just waiting to take us all to the conversion theater! Or there could be millions of xenomorphs waiting to impregnate all of us in an attempt to populate the Earth! Or, maybe they’re already here, living among us!

All you need to do to spot an alien is to watch a sports match to be shown proof that aliens are already here. One time, Altuve pasted one into right field and the stands erupted into mirth or melancholy, depending on who people were rooting for, but it’s the ones who aren’t reacting that stood out the most. Those who show no emotion at a sports game is announcing to the world they are an alien.

If you don’t believe me, perhaps you are already an alien.

This short was inspired by:

Word of the Day Challenge — mirth
FOWC with Fandango — melancholy
Merriam-Webster Word of the Day — paste (means to strike hard at)
