Drabble: Reality


I look down at myself in the wrecked car. I wonder as I ascend if the atheism was a mistake.

Then I notice the ship – a featureless silver oblong, dully reflective. A hole opens in the side and I’m sucked in.

"Quite a crash," says the alien.

"Am I going to live?"

"Probably not. You’re might already be dead, down there."


"It’s compliated."

"So why did you bring me up here?"

"Sign this waiver. We want to put your crash on our Best Earthling Fuckups video."

"Why would I do that?"

"Don’t you want to be famous?"

"Well, yeah."
