A gasp draws my attention.
We're reading Internet news on our computers. She's over at her recliner. I'm at my desk.
What? I ask.
Six squirrels had their tails fused together.
Fused? How were they fused.
Naturalists say this is common. They were sitting with their tails entwined. Tree sap dripped down on their tails and they became fused together.
Fortunately someone found these six squirrels. They were transported to a hospital, sedated and their tails were shaved so they could be separated.
Can you imagine them talking after that? "Boy, I had the strangest dream. We were all on a branch together and our tails got stuck. So then we were taken somewhere where they shaved our tails and...." Seeing his tail, he cries out in horror, "Oh my God, it's true. Our tails are shaven, our tails are shaven. It really happened."
My wife laughed. Maybe that's what happens when aliens abduct us.
When they probe us?
Yes, they look down and see a human with something wrong with them and say, "Poor little humans, let me pick them up and fix them."
And afterward we wake up and say, "I had the strangest dream that I was picked up and probed...."
