“For the thousandth time, I swear it wasn’t me!!” screamed my daughter as she stomped off to her room. I was so exasperated because she carelessly left her clothes on the floor and then our new puppy, Jake, would snatch them and chew holes in them. I was forever buying socks for her and they were costly. Especially socks for a fashion conscious teen girl. Of course, I didn’t believe her because no one in the house was going to come in and deliberately throw her socks on the floor.
My car had been acting up of late so I pulled out of the driveway cautiously to see if it was running well. Turning to my right to check traffic, my eyes caught an image of my house. “What!?”, I hollered. There was a greenish glow coming from the newer split-level home. I stopped the car, opened the door and ran to the house. The green light glowing all the while. Looking in the window I saw our little puppy in the arms of an E.T. and they were playing with my daughter’s socks all over the livingroom. The dog was blissful and the E.T. was singing in his language.
