I Haven’t Been To Roswell

Hello. My name is Mike aka CheesyMike.

I don’t think I’ve been to Roswell, but you know, the memory’s a funny thing. Our brains lie to us all the time. Yes, our brains are liars. Pathological liars even, but that’s a whole other prompt (see Day 18).

I’ve been away. I’m just not entirely sure where.  It’s kind of a blur. There are rumours, I hear, but I can’t confirm any of them. I have definitely been places in the past 2 weeks. Like, I’m pretty sure that I’ve been down the street and that I’ve been to the corner store because it looks so familiar. I’ve also been across town, but what’s special about that? Who hasn’t been across town? I also have definitely not been on a plane (recently), although I guess I’ve been on a train, of sorts. It’s kind of a crazy one and the conductor looks a lot like my boss. Or maybe I’m just projecting.

Still, this is all very strange and you know, suddenly appearing here and noticing Nicky’s conspicuous absence, I think we all know what I’m about to say, right?


It has to be aliens. We’ve been swapped.

  • OMG! I just hope the aliens don’t leave her off where I am. But seriously, welcome back to earth, Mike. BTW… You’re not going to make me participate in this 30M2DoW thing, are you? ARE YOU? Oh, crap!

    And now I have Three Dog Night’s song, “Well I’ve Never Been to Spain,” going through my head. Or maybe not. Maybe I have “Flying Purple People Eater” going through my head and my brain is lying to me. Damned aliens.

  • Thanks a lot Frank. Who wears short-shorts?

  • Pictures. We want pictures of Daenerys. Oh, hi Mike. Welcome back, whatever.

  • Cadeaux

    Maybe you only had your heads swapped – did you take all your clothes off and look in the mirror?

  • frankleemeidere

    Damn you! Sugar sugar!

  • Now I’m scared. Really scared.

  • ReformingGeek

    I knew it and I’m beginning to think I’ve been switched with the cat.


    Oh, and yeah, blame Evil Twin for that prompt. She has a red phone for the mother ship.

  • Don’t be scared, we can handle a few aliens, right?

  • I just did, but now I’m thinking that maybe I should have waited until I got home.

  • Hey there, Dufus. Yeah, that Daenerys is a bit of a scene stealer.

  • That’s enough outta both of youse!

  • Ha, see, you already have participated. There’s no escape. Believe me, I tried.

  • It’s cheesy Waldo!!! Welcome back from your crazy work train!!!

  • Thanks!

  • Yummy, yummy, yummy I’ve got love in my tummy?

    I have been to Roswell. It’s not the fun place it’s hyped up to be. I didn’t see one alien. I want my money back. Sorry about Nicky’s disappearance, but glad you found your way home!

  • No I haven’t…. I refuse to participate. This is simply a log of how I’m avoiding Nicky.

  • KZ

    Hmm, no sign of Nicky in the comments. Aliens sound legit.

  • Cool. I’ll remember that next time I a lift somewhere.

  • Me too. Now if only I could find a way out of this writing challenge. Wait. I just confused myself.

  • It don’t get more legit than that.

  • That explains everything. Nice to see you back, Mike…however it happened.

  • You know, there’s an easy way of knowing whether or not it really was aliens. Just grab a hard chair and sit down. If you’re sore, it was aliens.
