Drabble: Special Interests

Special Interests

“If you really want to get me elected, you sure have a strange way of showing it.”

[Do not be concerned.]

“Easy for you to say.”

[Your success is ensured, given your continued cooperation.]

“So how should I explain my day-long disappearance this soon before election day? Just admit I was on an alien spaceship?”

[That would be a poor choice.]

“Then what?”

[News has been leaked of a minor dental emergency. Documentation and records will back this story up.]

“You’ve got it all thought out, huh? You must really want your man inside.”

[One way of putting it.]
