Once upon a time aliens adopted me and took me to Venus. My alien family is like a normal family, only with blue skin.
Do you know what they have for microwaves? A whole bunch of hot rocks. Do you know what they eat at every meal? Corn rocks! My dad bought a freezer and it’s a whole bunch of frozen rocks.
Once we took a vacation to Mars and I was on the moon and on the moon I was throwing rocks at other rocks. When we got home to Venus I threw rocks out the window.
And then I had an alien guest over for dinner. After dinner we played alien, paper, scissors, shoot. Then we went outside and played on the swingset.
