What to Do in Case of an Alien Invasion

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."

Brilliant! 

So what would you do if aliens invaded our planet?

  3. Spread the germs, they are fatal to the aliens, then hide in the freezer

    1. Germ spreading worked well for Mr. Wells.

  4. I'd put them to work helping me do some landscaping...

    1. Hopefully they wouldn't be plant eaters!

  5. Clever, although you might want to mention the dangers of hiding in a freezer to him.

    1. I did. He said it was no problem. He'd just wear his winter coat and furry hat.

  6. he's a bright boy! (but I would also take Kellie's advice and let him know the dangers of getting trapped inside a freezer or refrigerator).

    1. See above comment. (Seriously, he knows not to crawl into a freezer or refrigerator.)

  7. he will have a joyful time freezing in the freezer :) The aliens could then just use him as a human ice cube for their alien cola....

    1. Ha! He'd be one big ice cube, so their cola glass had better be large!

  8. Hi Sherry,

    Brilliant! Indeed! Yes, the freezer idea is not recommended. Evidently, some understand English, depending on the accent.

    If aliens invaded our planet, I'd ward them off with one of my clocks, yes, I spelt that correctly. I ward them of with one of my timepieces, in case they were the "race against time" aka 'aliens who hate clocks'!

    Take care,

    Gary

    1. Ha! I'll be sure to have a nice stash of clocks nearby in case of such an emergency!

  9. Bubba is very clever indeed. I hope he wouldn't mind how cold it is in the freezer. Maybe he could adjust the temperature before he hopped in, just to make it a little more comfy.

    1. Maybe. But then the aliens might detect his heat.

  10. Brilliant at it's best Sherry.

  11. I have never given it much thought, either. It would depend on the aliens--if they were friendly or not. But I'd be inclined to keep my distance until I knew one way or the other so hide and observe sounds like a good plan. ;)

  12. I would send Spawn out to greet them. If that doesn't scare them enough for them to not invade, then nothing will. :)
