Gift shop invasion

by Anonymous | Score: 3250

As I walk into a gift shop, in the middle of a ghost town in New Mexico, I hear a loud swoosh over and over again above the building, but then it stops. I go to check out all of the cool post cards and then out of no where a bunch of aliens start to invade the gift shop, but they don't seem to be causing any harm. They walk around the gift shop looking at different stuff, one found a cool novel and tried to read it. Another one went around looking at a bunch of boots in the shop, a thinking shoemaker came out from the back room after hearing everything that was going on and tried to ask the alien if he wanted a shoe. The alien of course didn't understand what the shoemaker was saying and was speaking gibberish. After a while nothing interesting happens until the aliens walk into the little dinner that the shop has in the back corner. They begin to raid the kitchen and they find a bunch of chicken bones, the cook grabs a wishbone and a breaks it with another costumer. The cook got his wish and it was to understand what the aliens were saying. It worked! He started to translate what the aliens were saying to the shop manager
