The Bay It Buzz
I knew they were lying.
It wasn't just that the
house was a mess, it's what lay beyond the gate that really stunned me. Desert.
There were a few forlorn little houses like mine and then nothing but scrub and
dust and tumbleweed as far as the eye could see.
"You call this the
way it was?" I said to Bork. The alien stood a full seven feet tall and
grinned down at me with its idiotic grin and its shiny suit. It looked human
but you could tell it wasn't really.
I could only groan for
what was once a lovely Midwestern town in the corn-belt. Put through Bork's
analyzer it was supposed to be digitized and reassembled exactly the way it
was. But it didn't take a genius to see that the reality that went in
wasn't what came out. In went my gorgeous sofa with the art deco arms and the
fabric I searched all over
yelled. "You're getting it all wrong."
"Don burry," Bork said and squirted me with something that knocked me out for a week. When I came to, things were pretty strange and Bork and his pals were gone. He paid me though, just as he promised. I have a stack of hundred dollar bills in the basement. Every one has a picture of George Bush on it.
