“Are they aliens?” asked Crisp as we wandered down the lane.
“No just two young people out on a ride,” I answered not wanting to agitate her.
Since Crisp, my aged companion, had begun to lose her mind the subject of aliens had come up more frequently than I liked.
She stopped in her tracks: “I think they are,” she stated, “I know about these things.”
“No, they are not aliens, just two kids out for a ride.”
“Watch them, any minute now they may do something you’ll forever regret.”
It was at this precise moment they did look back and spy us. There reaction was worth noting as it left my gobsmacked.
They urged their horses on and both rose into the sky like a scene from ET.
Crisp watched, then nodding her head said: “There I told you so.”

The arrogance of the young… Crisp sure still knows what she’s talking about. Fun story.
