The New Sea



Flower:  Guess whose car that is.
Me:  I don’t know.
Flower:  The man who used to live in the village
down the hill when he was a child.
Me:  No village is down the hill but the sea.
Flower:  The village is submerged under the sea.
Me:  How did it happen?
Flower:  Guess.
Me:  Arctic melt caused it?
Flower:  Nope.
Me:  The rain that poured down for months must’ve been
the culprit!
Flower:  Close enough.  But do you know what caused the such
a rain storm?
Me:  Climate change, of course.
Flower:  Wrong.  Aliens made the storm clouds from the ocean.
They will do that again until all the humans are drowned.
Me:  Unbelievable!

* This is based on my new book that will be out in March or
April 2018.  Implausible, you might say, but after reading the
book, you might nod, saying:  “It’s possible.”
