Yesterday at 4:21 PM, I was having lunch with Martha at Toñita's Restaurant. Martha went to the restroom and so did I. I didn't realize I was leaving my phone on the table. When I came to the table, I noticed my cell phone wasn't there anymore. Somebody took it!
LET'S SPECULATE!
One day, when I was 13 years old, I was alone at home. My mom went out with my aunt and I stayed watching TV in my living room. They were broadcasting my favorite TV show: The X Files.
It was 7:30 PM. and I felt hungry. I was going to the kitchen to get something to eat when I felt something strange. I heard a noise like bees buzzing. I looked out the window and I got shocked and paralyzed. There was a UFO, like in the movies, floating and rotating above my house. I fainted. When I woke up, I was in my bed covered with my blanket.
I certainly don't know what happened. But if you ask me, I think
it could have been a nightmare
or
it might have been just my imagination
since I was watching that Science fiction series on TV.
It couldn't have been aliens coming to abduct me.
I don't believe in extraterrestrial life.
