(They were just waiting for all the Area 51 raiders to go home)
This one is a little late, (or is it?) as the main event to ”Storm Area 51” was of course scheduled for Friday September 20th.
“What event?” My ever-tolerant mom is asking as she reads this....(though there was a good bit of coverage in the New York Times.... So, perhaps I can’t use Grandma as a foil here.)
At any rate, there was a fair amount of attention paid by our kids to the supposed raid on Area 51 last Friday. The huge online phenomenon manifested a good bit smaller in the real world. And sadly, we were not among the 400 or so people who actually went to the site...or the environs.
But we were among the millions who were impressed by the guy who managed to get his Naruto run in the background behind a reporter from “Action 13 News”...and became a worldwide meme.
Naruto running: perhaps no more implausible or uncomfortable in the real world than the extraterrestrials in Nevada.
My son tells me that he can recognize all of the aliens on this napkin, so at least there’s that.
