    The Story... [Temp 1]

    Yeah.. the same game that was going on before... just to kill time

    Let's limit it to 1 sentence each with no post padding...

    Jack woke up sweating and panting, scared about the nightmare that had just passed....

    A large green incredibly ugly alien with tentacles for a mouth stood at the foot of his bed holding a rather imposing weapon.

    The thought of anal probing crossed his mind and sent a cold shiver through his spine...

    "I am not here to give you an anal probe," said the alien, reading Jacks thoughts.
    "Are you sure," replied Jack
    "Yes," responded the alien. "There will be no anal probing this day."
    "Damn," muttered Jack.

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    He realized he thought that his dentist looked a little odd, and had this thing against cats, as well as, his crown needed “special” material.

    He began to muse on the design life of a dental crown. Gold? Porcelain? Vinyl? Which might be the best choice? If he had a dental emergency, would the dentist refuse to work on one of these because of the risk?

    If this really was his dentist standing at the foot of his bed, would the government be able to read his thoughts after the "crown" was placed in his mouth?

    He had also heard that the aliens that survived the Roswell crash were working for the government in secret undercover operations, Jack feared for his life...

    ......because he thought he would end up on a very uninteresting episode of X-Files, particularly one from the final season.

    Then out of the corner of his eye he saw Gillian Anderson the woman of his dreams. Maybe I really am part of the X-files?

    Or was it just another strange evening out with a bunch of fellow Cyburbians?

    Jack didn't know, as he seemed not to remember much after that 9th pint of Harp!

    he had drank so much the night before to deal with his stress over the Cyburbia down time.

    But he definately felt the Harp in his stomach now. It felt like aliens were invading in there.

    While Jack was contemplating chucking, Gillian Anderson had moved over to stand next to the ugly alien with a small pet racoon on her oh so barely covered shoulder.

    That's when he knew his Cyburbia addiction was getting out of hand. The hallucinating had to stop. But what was the right treatment?

    So off he went to the local bar, but where was everyone. "Sorry." said a man passing by. "Server crashed. First the hard liquor was wiped out, then the beer went too."

    He had to wonder what would ever happen to Scruffy with all his story gone...maybe the Segway riding aliens will save him...

    Already Scruffy was a fading memory. Jack was feeling a little odd. His arm was sort of tingling. Holding it up to have a look at it, he recoiled in horror - he could see through it! Was he fading out of existence?

    While Jack was asleep and not up to presenting his cases, the Board had approved a Super WalMart and Sam's Club right on top of Scruffy's ancestral home...
