Put a Straw in It

When the giant coconut appeared in central L.A., many people thought it was a prank.

No one could find a way inside. The government tried to cordon off the immediate area, but locals found ways to sneak in.

One intrepid local decided to take a wooden shaft and stick it in the coconut, like a straw. Sure enough, the surface opened, and delicious coconut milk flowed out.

A few days later, the aliens arrived. “We hope you enjoyed the gift of sustenance.”

The street holds the sickly sweet smell of coconuts to this day.

  1. What a quirky and original take, Anne. This was fun – and these aliens sound like the non-invasive, well, non evil anyway, type!

  2. Anne,
    Hope this was no poisoned gift, but I’m suspicious given the closing “sickly sweet smell of coconuts”!
    pax,
