What Was That BOOM Over Quincy?

Still aliens.

At approximately 1:45pm, or possibly 2:00, I wasn’t looking at a clock, a mighty boom (not to be confused with British comedy troupe The Mighty Boosh) rocked Quincy, and possibly surrounding areas. I certainly felt it in our Quincy studios, and soon all my Quincy friends on the Facebooks were hammering away brightly colored status updates about that big boom we all just heard and felt. It certainly shook the building. We thought a car hit us.

After careful, thoughtful debate amongst ourselves, my office-mates and friends on the Book of Faces determined that it must have been a jet that broke the sound barrier overhead. The Blue Angels were hanging out in St. Louis this weekend, so it could be true. But what do they know? They may have been hit with the neuralyzer.

Oh a jet broke the sound barrier. HOW CONVENIENT! I say aliens, and the whole jet thing is a cover story. Or maybe it was like in that episode of Star Trek: The Original Series, Tomorrow Is Yesterday. You know, when the Enterprise was trying to escape a black hole, and the gravitational pull snapped them back in time to the 1960s, and then they had to slingshot around the sun to get back to the present, but not before dropping into Offutt Air Force Base near Omaha to delete all records that they were here. It could have been that.

Or it was aliens. They stopped by Hannibal a week ago. They visited St. Louis last year. We know they’ve been here before, what with the Roswell Incident and “David Bowie,” if that is his real name (Spoiler Alert: It’s not). We’re three weeks away from Independence Day.The aliens could be sending in the scout ships to make sure everything’s all set for the invasion.

Either way, whether it’s aliens or time traveling future-humans, I think I’m going to spend the rest of my afternoon practicing my sweet dance moves, to get ready for the Men In Black to come save us from the aliens.
