OMG: Area 51
Friday, September 20, 2019
I don't live to far from the gas station/diner/hotel in Armagosa Valley,NV.
I stopped in at the gas station over 3 years ago. It's has a quirky little gift shop selling anything imaginable with aliens on it. Hey it's all a fun gimmick for a business in the middle of the desert.
I had read about the event taking place tomorrow..where people plan on invading the area looking for aliens. This event was first mentioned on Facebook...now who really listens or believes everything on Facebook? Well apparently alot of people do. 2 international guys actually got arrested earlier this week for trespassing in the area.
I had sorta lost track of what day this silly event was happening until 2 customers from Germany came into my gift shop today. They said that they bought the shirts in Baker, California and have no intention of going to "storming area 51" , I guess they just liked the shirts. I wonder if this means that we will be even busier tomorrow.
When we had a cold and windy sandstorm today, (yes hard to believe that I actually got cold today) I started making jokes to other employees about the crazy weather being caused by the aliens spaceships. Yes I realize that I should not make such jokes because some people don't know the difference between a joke and reality...obviously that's why tomorrow's event is all over the news.
