SF Drabble #235 “Getting To Know You”

There was one of those aliens in the hallway. “Mister George R. Lincoln?”


“You are the Mister George R. Lincoln who resides at this address?”

“Yes. Of course. What’s this about?”

“Mister Lincoln, as part of the community outreach program our public relations firm has advised us to sponsor, we are offering randomly selected citizens a tour of our Embassy in New York.”

“New York?”

“Yes, Mister Lincoln. All expenses paid.”

“I’ve never been to New York. But… this isn’t some kind of trick where I end up getting probed, is it?”

“Not that I’m aware of, Mister Lincoln.”
