DID YOU EVER SIT IN YOUR ROOM AND THINK TO YOURSELF, “HOW WERE ALIENS
CREATED?” WELL, YOU DON’T HAVE TO ANYMORE; JUST KEEP ON READING. I HAVE A LOT OF THINGS TO SAY ABOUT ALIENS.
FIRST OFF, I BET THAT THEY WERE HATCHED OUT OF BIG GREEN EGGS. IN
THOSE EGGS, THERE WAS A STEERING WHEEL AND A WINDOW THAT THEY COULD
LOOK THROUGH. THE FUNNY THING IS THAT THE STEERING WHEEL WAS PINK INSTEAD OF GREEN. ALSO, THE BIG GREEN EGGS COULD FLY!!
Second, l think that they make noises. So, if they come down to earth, keep your ears open for the noises that they make. I don’t know what they sound like, but that is why they made the Internet. Some small and some are big. Most are male, some are female. None of the aliens make the same sounds or types of noises.
Lastly, l think that they would be super cool to meet. They do the weirdest things that you might never think of trying or doing, like flying in big green eggs. I love their pink steering wheel idea.
Thank you for reading my story. I tried to make it both funny and true. Okay, maybe not the true part, but you know what I mean. But remember to keep your eyes and ears open for Aliens. You never know, they could be planning when and where they are going to come down to Planet Earth. But remember the sounds that they make when you look it up on the Internet.
