Here is another wonderful post from Steve.

Dear Dinosaurs,

In the mail today, I received a “thank you” letter from someone I now refer to as a Space Human.
His words inspired me to write you!
He was genuinely appreciative of the sacrifice each generation of “Land Humans” had to make while attempting space travel.

He went on to say that he recently received a letter of his own from someone he referred to as a Time Human. And that this letter was followed shortly by a visit from said Time Human. But he said that when the Time Human exited the Time Machine he sort of reached in his Vintage Jelly Fish Coat pocket in a suspiciously quick manner and so they accidentally Laser Blasted the Time Human… and kind of, sort of, stole his Time Machine. This mix up apparently started what the Galaxy is calling The Space/Time War.

The Space Humans went on to say, and I quote, “Join us and end your extinction, PS: See if you can get the dinosaurs.”

And so that is why, today, we write you guys this letter.

You don’t have to decide now. We’ll send a Time Machine to you in the year 1200 BC. We simply ask that you line up all potential Dino-soldiers on the equator. A Space Human will exit the Time Machine and proceed to pick the crème of the crop. Oh and, in regards to recruits, we were thinking less Land Before Time more Jurassic park.
Thank you for your consideration in the fight for survival.

Sincerely,

The Land Humans

Dear Land Humans,

We received your letter, it is 1200 BC and we are lined up on the Equator. It is getting late and no sign of the Time Machine. We are getting nervous to say the least. If you changed your mind that’s one thing but come on man, at least send another letter. I can’t tell you how frigin’ hot it is where we are. We’re not used to this, the climate change is killing us. So anyway if you get this… Oh wait, never mind, I see the Time Machine. Wow, that’s big! I didn’t realize how big it would be. I’m impressed. Wow. Alright, we’ll see you guys soon.

Yours truly,

The Dinosaurs

Letter in a Bottle

Posted: January 29, 2010 in Steve's posts

I have asked a few friends to be a part of my blog, and Steve is the first one to respond with something to post on my blog.  Steve and I have known each other since elementary school and NOBODY calls him Steve.  I am calling him Steve, instead of his common name only because I call myself Andrew Michaels on this blog, but NOBODY calls me by that name in real life.  Also, he is not to be confused with my friend Andrew, whose first name is actually Steve, even though I have only ever called him by his last name.  Steve lives in California and has been working in writing in one way or another for a long time now.  He has a short film that I recently watched and really enjoyed.  I plan on posting the short film some time next week on the blog.   I hope that this  becomes a regular weekly random posting from Steve.  Only time will tell. I hope that you enjoy this short story!

This short story is entitled……..

LETTER IN A BOTTLE

I saw a woman at the roller rink that looked exactly like a porn actress in a porno I own. And even though I knew she could not have been the porn actress, based on the fact that the porno was made in 1987 and the actual actress would have aged 20 some years, I was still compelled to make her aware of the uncanny resemblance.

I told her, and to my surprise she replied with, “But this is 1987”. And as I looked around in slow motion, a wave of embarrassment washed over my spiky mullet. She was right.

I couldn’t help but be reminded of the time that I bought a DeLorean and purposely got a ticket for going 88mph, just to tell the judge that if I was truly going 88 mph that I would be in 1955. His reply, “But you are in 1955”.
I can’t explain time travel to you because I don’t know when you are reading this or when I am writing this but just know that I love you and in time we will be together.
