Many years ago I was witness to a failed alien abduction. I promise you, I am not making this up. It was the early '80s, and I was around 10 years old. I was camping with my family and friends at a nearby state park, and I was sitting by the lake admiring a gorgeous moon in a completely cloudless sky. Man, what a night. Suddenly, out of the pristinely clear night sky came a beam of some sort! The thing missed me by about 12", and didn’t repeat. It hit the ground on my right side, and I fell outta my chair to the left. Wow! Man, WHAT A NIGHT!!!
The next morning I investigated the area under daylight and found a hole in the ground beside my chair. A hole that hadn’t been there the day before. Strangely, it smelled of sweet pickles. It wasn’t until years later that I realized I was almost an abductee. I mean, c’mon, the moon doesn’t just throw sweet-pickle-smelling beams of light around. There was some serious technology behind that, despite the failed attempt at collecting a weird little 10 year old boy. I assume that, while their technology is so far ahead of ours today, back then they were just catching up. That’s why their beam missed me when they tried to teleport me to the craft. Either that or they were trying to vaporize me and missed. Either way, I missed out on some serious childhood excitement. So, over 20 years later, I’ve been on a kick of recapturing memories from my youth. Visiting old places. Reading old books. Doing old things. Which brings me to this. Is there any way to actually encourage aliens to abduct me? I’d like to know just what I missed as a result of their faulty technology. Do they have a craft from that era that I might see? Also, is anyone familiar with the alien craft technology from the early 1980s? Was that just a test or did they legitimately miss? And, more importantly, why did it smell of sweet pickles? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
