A Trafeon Father and Son Visit the Earth Museum

That little island was a continent, Papa?

Yes, son, global warming eventually submerged all land masses.

Wow. And earth’s scientists couldn’t reverse it?

They tried, but their corporations didn’t care about their impact.

Crazy. What about those other land masses?

Artificial floating reefs. Earth’s wealthiest citizens constructed them to live on, robotized industry, and let the rest of their species die off. They’ll be extinct soon because they no longer remember how to fix the technology they created to sustain themselves.

Can I see a human, Papa?

Better still, I’ll buy you a few. They’re on sale today in the Museum Store.

  1. I see the Trafeons are into marketing opportunities too. I wonder if their homeworld will fare any better than ours in that case. Engaging dialogue and a fun, light take on a big topic. Enjoyable.

  2. I’m not sure I’d waste my money on a human. In general, not good value for money these days.A wry and interesting take on the photo Randy, enjoyed it.

    • That’s what I like: a human with a positive opinion of other humans.
      Are you absolutely positive?

      Reader Alert
      Sandra could be a Trafeon in disguise.
      Beware. Be on the alert for other telltale signs of Trafe or unkosher opinions.

  3. Yes, this is funny and sad. To think that with most of the technology we use, we really have no idea of how it actually works. Very true. And already we can’t reverse what’s happening with our climate. It’s frightening.

  4. Or is it sad humour? I hope you’re not known for your prophesying ability Randy. 🙂 Also, I’m not sure the humans on sale would be of much use or interest. I can imagine they might bemoan their plight quite a bit. Lovely story.

    • Thank you.
      I appreciate your comments.
      Yes, it is sad humor.
      I do not prophesy, although I do occasionally get flatulence, and then there’s no telling what the future might bring.
      Humans, whether they are on sale or sold at a premium, always kvetch – but rightly so, because we don’t live in paradise. Until we do, we’ll kvertch that things aren’t perfect.

Have some fun...
