    You’re not going to believe me but here is what happened.
    Everyone thinks I’m a flake and I can never change that. I really do mean to be on time but something always gets in the way I swear! People call it excuses but its not, they are legit reasons. So I was on my way to my boyfriends house. I told him I would be there by 1 and I had to be on time because we were going to lunch with his grand parents and they were very strict with time. On my way over there my car started heating up so I pulled over to see what the problem was. Of course my phone was dead because I had forgotten to charge it the night before. Well once again I was extremely late and no one thinks what happened was legit.

    You aren’t going to believe me, but here’s what happen, I was walking home from school and boom! I get yelled at for not answering my phone. People think that maybe I am busy doing something but no it is all about them and that I need to answer my phone asap. What a day.

    You’re not going to believe me,
    but here’s what happened…
    A woman came up to me on the street.
    Blue eyed brunette in a summer dress.
    I had never met anyone quite like her.
    We took a walk to the park and watched the sunset.
    I could tell we were both fascinated
    by each other.
    I stared deep into her eyes,
    and we shared a kiss.
    That moment lasted forever.
    At the end of the night She told me where She lived,
    So I walked Her home.
    I told her I would be waiting outside
    for Her when She woke up.
    I never saw Her again after I left.
    Not a day goes by that i don’t think about Her.

    Your not going to believe me, but here is what happened. I understand that this might sound crazy, but it is as true as a story gets. So here I go, I went to school, thinking it was a normal day. I walk towards my classroom that shuts the lights off like immediatly. I just couldn’t think of how come, so I walk towards the door. And hold it open, turn on the lights, and there is my whole entire class yelling “Surprise!!!” I was in awe, but then someone ruined it by telling me that it was for my teacher, and not me. I carefully walk to my desk, as the lights go off again and the sound of “Surprise!” yells again as there is now a definent surprise.

    You’re not going to believe me, but here’s what happened. Last night, under the crisp moonlight, i was laying on my roof stargazing. There i was, face to face with black abyss; my back parallel with the shingles. Breeze upon chilling breeze etched goosebumps on my skin. This night felt different. The stars seemed brighter. The crickets took their sleeping pills. It was dead silent. Deep into the night, a shooting star streaked awkwardly across the sky like an inebriated tinker bell, penetrating the atmosphere, becoming massive. Hovering above my head, there it was. The big, foreign hunk of metal was at cloud level. At that moment, what do you do when you’re up close and personal with extra-terrestrial and fear? Ride it out, and pray to god you don’t get abducted. As soon as the U.F.O arrived, it was instantly gone. Those damn aliens. Spaceships disguised as the stars, how cool is that? Aliens, man.
