They had struck again. Confetti was one of their calling cards that they were known for. It always sparkled and glittered.
They were a smooth team, always managed to have the element of surprise. One knew to expect the unexpected when dealing with this talented team.
Frank and George were walking around the room looking at all the glittery …. and sparkly confetti and trying to not to disturb the cat who was eyeing them with a mischievous glint in its green eyes.
“George, did you see this?”
George walked over and looked at what Frank held in his hand.
“Mini spaceships? Hmm… What are spaceships doing here?” George looked at them scattered about.
“Maybe this wasn’t the work of who we were thinking. Perhaps some aliens were having a party, confetti and all! There are 24 spaceships, so it must have been a pretty good sized party.”
Frank stared at him. “Aliens?”
“Yes, aliens, you know, those little green or blue men that live in outer space.”
Frank kept staring at him as he slowly shook his head, “Are you saying that you believe in aliens?”
“Well can’t say I ever saw one… but…”
Frank sighed, “Look George, I think you could use some of these!” He picked up some marbles that were lying on the floor.
“I always said you were losing your marbles. Now I am more convinced than ever before! ”
George made a face and said, “I am getting hungry, lets go grab a burger.”
Frank reached into his pocket and pulled out a bag of goldfish crackers. “Want some of these to snack on?”
George shook his head, “Those crackers would be the perfect size for a snack for aliens to eat. Maybe we could come back after dark and take a look in the house to see if…”
Frank opened up the door, “Lets go, you need some food and I think it can be your treat tonight. Do you mind if I order all the desserts on the menu? Then I believe that you need a really good night’s sleep!”
They went out the door, closing it behind them. The sound of the door being closed echoed down the hallway of the empty house.
Around midnight there was some stirring in the house, but it wasn’t a mouse. There were no mice, as the mice had no chance against the cat that ruled the house.
The cat wasn’t sure though what to make of the noise, as he looked around. If someone had been watching they would have seen an intriguing sight, that made the cat howl. 24 mini spaceships were flying around the house in circles, and they were getting higher and higher.
A daring mouse saw his chance, the King Cat was distracted. The mouse quickly darted across the floor grabbing some goldfish cracker crumbs as he ran into his hole.
The cat’s eyes were transfixed on the circling spaceships. What would happen, would they mysteriously disappear through the ceiling and travel elsewhere?
Meanwhile George had just got home, and was getting ready for bed when he happened to look out the window. No! It couldn’t be, but yes, he was seeing it with his own eyes. 1, 2, 3, 4, …… spaceships!
Whoa! George opened the window, and about fell out in surprise. “Was that really a flying cat that he just saw go by following the spaceships!”
Perhaps Frank was right, perhaps he really did need a good, long, sleep!
