O – Ordinary People


Here’s my post for the A-Z Challenge, letter O. I’m so glad it’s Friday. I’m finally starting to hit some of my deadlines again. Hope you’ve had a good week so far!

Ordinary People

Notice found on an intergalactic billboard:

Yes, ordinary humans, we want YOU for a once-in-lifetime research opportunity.

Now seeking human families, preferably one of each gender with at least two biological descendants of said couple.

(Note: If you are currently in a marital or other committed relationship with a member of another species but think you might be interested, please contact us anyway as free IVF and other non-sexual reproductive arrangements may be an option.)

All transportation and living expenses will be paid by us for the duration of this experiment.

Please contact us today for more information:

The Ordinary People Foundation

Note: Regular experimentation will be required. Satisfaction and comfort cannot be guaranteed. Side effects may include weight-gain, sleeplessness, and death. Most participants report overall satisfaction, but this may not be your experience. Void in star systems prohibiting human experimentation. All rights reserved.

So…just wondering…would you sign up? πŸ˜‰ As I was writing this story, all I kept thinking was Soylent Green is People and It’s a Cookbook!!! I still can’t believe Soylent is an actual food product. I’d definitely do my research first.

Happy Friday!

  1. That is just scary. I’m sure there are people who’d sign up. There’s always someone. I would not.
    I enjoyed this.

    1. BTW, Anne, you need to get on twitter. It’s so much easier to build an audience using twitter than facebook.

  2. nope πŸ™‚ would not sign up. But I believe like Ula said – there would be people that’d sign up. Like for that one way ticket to Mars…
