1123. Being followed

(This is the fifth and final of the Science Fiction stories to commemorate Science Fiction Day. Science Fiction Day is celebrated each year on Isaac Asimov’s birthday: January 2nd. Ok ok – haven’t you heard of a Time Warp?)

Oh God! Don’t you just hate it when aliens follow you around all the time? These personages from another planet are like a bad smell. They won’t leave us alone.

They think their space craft is invisible made up of this and that. But we see them as clear as a bell. They’re probably taking notes about us, and putting out encyclopaedias as to what we do. About our sex life and what we eat. It’s an invasion of privacy, that’s what it is. An invasion of privacy!

At present there seem to be three small space craft following our little car.

Piss off, aliens. Go back to Planet Earth where you belong and stop bothering us.

      I shall look forward to it! Although I’m just back from a brother’s 50th wedding anniversary celebration and I think I’m getting the flu. Feel as sick as a dog!! So I might not be about for a couple of days?

      Thanks, Sarah. I think it might be my favourite too. (I have come down with the flu so shall be remaining quiet for the next few days. Postings will still happen however, as I am three months ahead!)

    Hi Bruce, I like your brand of SF, this final story of the series especially. Such a neat comment on our nosy human nature.

    You could begin a future series with ‘Paparazzi in Space’!

    Hope you’re feeling better soon.
