Bird and Gato made a strange pair. Bird believed that extraterrestrials bestowed humankind with technology; then continued their contact through advising, abducting, and probing us. Gato was raised Christian; he’d been saved at age five and waited patiently for The Return of Jesus. Married twenty-five years, we believed their heated debates helped keep their union vibrant.
While sipping coffee with them at our weekly breakfast at Melba’s, the whole place began to shimmy. A bright, decorated disc materialized above. It looked like a church spaceship.
Bird and Gato looked up, then at each other, and said simultaneously, “I was right!”
