My eight year old son and I had a very serious conversation today. Here's how it went:
"Mama, what would you do if aliens invaded?" the boy asked.
I honestly hadn't thought about that, so I took a moment to ponder it. "I think I'd hide and spy on them. What would you do?"
He crinkled up his face and thought deeply. "Hmmm. I could ask them if they wanted to phone home. But they might not speak English. Or if they seemed mean, I could splash water on them. I've heard aliens don't like water."
I nodded my head.
"But what I'd probably do is hide in a freezer. Then they wouldn't be able to use their heat tracking sensors to find me."
So what would you do if aliens invaded our planet?
