SEX ON THE LAWN
So how would you like it if your father had been
slipping away to have sex with aliens?
Well, this whole alien abduction thing is really
driving me nuts! You'd think after all this time
everyone would be getting a bit bored with the same
old stories. Well yes, they are and that's the problem
for it's my story and the grown-ups just aren't
I've had to live with the stories just about all my life.

he wants. I keep thinking about all the other Mums
out there. It's not fair to them either. I guess they all
have much the same story to tell.
Well hybrids like me are the future, you'd better
believe it. A few of us have gathered together and
dreamt up a neat way to get our fathers to leave the
You'll be seeing the results soon for we have
something planned for their next grab-an-alien party.
We've reset their auto-navigation system for a landing
on the White House lawn. Let's just wait and see who
they try to have sex with when they get there.
