TEA AND BISQUITS WITH AN ET PART 2 RUDY GOES AWOL (NEWS AND CONVERSATIONS)
A couple of months later i was sitting watching a late night sci fi movie when there sounded
three soft knocks on our fifth floor window. Pulling the drapes aside i saw Rudy floating outside
with silly grin on his pale face and wearing some sort of transparent head gear.
Rudy: Are you busy with something?
Me: Christ, get in here before the neighbors see you. you lunatic.
Rudy passes through the window as if he is made of light and hovers down to sit on the couch.
Rudy crossing his thin legs: Have any of that fine Yunnan tea around? i would love a cup or two.
No worries, the neighbors can't see me and if they hear, it's only you talking to yourself again.
Me: Show off. Alright i'll make a batch, but what are you doing here?
i did receive your message, my wife told me. Flash of light dream is memory of the future, got it.
Is everyone on your planet as weird as you are?
Rudy laughing: Planet? We don't need no stinking planets. How many channels on this thing?
Me: 452 and please stop flipping the channels with your head, i can't afford another TV.
So what's the deal, going to explain to me what i am supposed to do about
knowing the apocalyptic future? And what the hell is that thing on your head?
Rudy: Yunnan tea in a mug, one teaspoon of acacia honey and then we'll talk.
Me from the kitchen: You spin me round round baby round round like a record baby round round round round.
Rudy: That's a fun tune, haha we like you.
Me: Ain't i the lucky one. Here's your precious tea. Well?
Rudy: Well what?
Me: What are you doing here?
Rudy: I´m stirring honey into the tea human.
Me glaring at Rudy: My wife took our boy to her mother's place for a few days to think things over. You really messed me up with that foreknowledge crap you pulled on me, she's afraid that i've lost my marbles. You have some explaining to do mister.
Rudy: It's true I do and that's why I'm here.
Me: Okay, i'm all ears.
(Rudy produces a four foot mirror out of a tiny piece of lint and holds it in front of me)
Me horrified: Jesus, i didn't mean literally.
Rudy: Sorry, couldn't resist.
Me: Stop toying with me, i'm a nervous wreck here.
Rudy sipping tea through his face mask: You are of course familiar with the butterfly effect, it is real but connected to thoughts as well as actions and it can be steered for a desired outcome, but most effectively when operated through the most potent senders or butterflies if you will. A few hundred thousand of these special butterflies exist on earth and not all are human but each one has been programmed through dream time suggestions and visits such as the one you received from me earlier with the single purpose of destroying all life on planet earth. You my friend are one of those Monarch butterflies.
Me: Get the fuck outta here.
Rudy: No I´m quite serious, I and my worker friends have been deceived, we have only discovered recently that we have been helping to carry out this terrible plan. That's why i am here now and my friends are visiting others to warn you not to believe in the visions you have had, that they are lies but capable of becoming truths.
Me: Oh that's just wonderful, here i was trying to deflate my ego and be a more humble human being, concentrate on me and my loved ones instead of worrying about this crazy world all the time and you come here sip my tea and casually lay this awesome responsibility on my shoulders. Why do you and your friends care anyway what happens to this world? Wait a minute, by telling me this aren't you committing treason or something, sealing your own doom?
Rudy: We have no choice now, like I said to you before i am linked to you and my friends are linked to others, if you go away so do we. Like never before we have a common interest. The mask I am wearing disguises my thoughts and actions to my superiors, an important precaution.
Me: Alright, can't you just program me with positive visions and problem solved? i really don't want to have any more to do with this directly than i have to.
Rudy: If that were so we wouldn't even be having this conversation now would we? The bosses can monitor all dream time work, there is no way around that, believe me we too wish there was, dealing with you fickle humans in the waking state is not exactly our cup of tea so to speak. No you have to reprogram yourself, I can assist you in suggesting the best ways of doing so but that's about it, the work has to be done by you. If it helps, I can tell you that I have faith in you.
Me: Lets say by some miracle the other butterflies and i manage to reprogram ourselves into happy visionaries and we avert the cataclysm, it won't be long into the process that your bosses will see that something is not right with their plan and they will suspect your friends and you and then it's bye bye Rudy and the world by some other means at their disposal.
Rudy emptying his mug: Let us worry about that, we got ourselves duped into this mess and we don't like it one bit, our responsibility is now to fool our bosses and plan their fall from grace. The may be super intelligent, but they are also vain, arrogant and sure of themselves, we shall use those weaknesses to our advantage There are greater forces, a higher court which they have to answer to if our plans succeed. Interesting times eh human?
Me from the kitchen: i'm not telling my wife this, she will divorce me for sure.
Rudy: Ahh yes more tea please, but skip the biscuits hahaha. Lets take up lighter chat since we are getting to know each other on a more personal basis. Ask me some silly things.
Me: My head's in a whirl. Okay is there any local musician or artist that's appreciated in your neck of the galaxy?
Rudy: Sure that's an easy one Iggy Pop is huge, even among those in different time rapidity and those homed in super gravity environments such as Krmtspm race. They are a bizarre higher life form that resemble a big flat yellow slug hahaha.
Me smiling: Yunnan makes you high, right?
