I'll start by saying I believe in aliens. From what I've read about the new Stephen Hawking show I probably have a similar view. I wish I had seen the show but I have this little kid who's been stealing my time.
I don't think they are coming here and abducting us...because I agree that if they did it probably wouldn't be good.
But I do have a theory about abduction and it came to me the other day while changing Miloh.
You always here that they are abducted by human like figures at night. The abductee is placed on a table. They are often under lights and then they are prodded.
Well that's exactly the experience Miloh had the other night. His room was dark, a human like figure picked him up, placed him on a table, turned a bright light on, stuck a metal probe in his butt and then placed him back in his bed.
The human like figure was of course me. He had been fussy and puked earlier in the day so before I did his night feeding I tool his temperature. I turned the room light on because I wanted to make sure the thermometer was going where it needed to.
Maybe the alien abductions are just some kind of early memory...a memory that is skewed a bit because it was so early.
I'm not sure of my earliest memory. I have 3 that are early but I don't know the timing. One was a cake that was for my father's birthday...it had cool little plastic boats on it. Another was my sister's b-day...my mom made individual frosted cakes for all of my sisters friends...they got to decorate the cakes themselves. I remember my was crazy sloppy and had everything on it...that's probably because I am 5 years younger. My last early memory is my birthday...my mom rented a film of Mighty Mouse comics for my friends to watch...let me repeat that, she rented a film like actual film we projected...I'm old.
You'll notice one thing that all my memories have in common...they are birthdays, but more importantly there was cake involved...I like cake. You'll also notice I don't remember my mom's b-days...that's probably because she was the one planning things wile my father did nothing for hers (I'm guessing.)
Back to the alien thing...it's just a theory but these are the things I think of.
