During the summers of 2001, 2002, and 2003, I lived in Farmington, New Mexico, working at an outdoor drama. I saw some amazing things when I lived in the southwest and this is one of those stories. Luckily, I was able to get most of it on camera.
It all started when I came across a giant lizard. I mean HUGE! But, since it was the southwest, I had my rifle with me. I dropped to one knee to get better aim (something I learned from playing Fallout), but then something amazing happened.
The lizard pulled out its cell phone.
and called its friend who was an alien! …who rode on a giant ladybug.
This alien had magical powers, and called forth a bicycle from the sky!
My friend Merritt was there too and tried to help, but the lizard JUMPED ITS BIKE OVER HER! That’s how amazing this lizard was!
Why did the alien help the giant lizard? What did they have between them, you ask.
Of course, not even friendship can save you when a giant bird swoops down and carries you off. Where’s your bike NOW, Mr. Lizard?!
Now you see why living in NM was such an adventure.
