The PODS are landing! The PODS are landing!

Seems about this time every year our neighborhood is invaded. Strange white boxes, larger than a car begin appearing in front of houses.
They must have landed overnight because they weren’t there yesterday. They don’t appear to be threatening or dangerous. They just sit there.
First there is one, then another shows up, then another. I don’t hear them land but there are more and more each year. It is a slow invasion.
Every now and then I see one with its mouth open and realize what they want.
What they seem to eat is our “stuff”.
Some only have a few pieces of furniture, while others have boxes of books, electronics, pictures, and appliances. They seem to be able to eat anything.
And when they are full, they take off for the mother ship and disappear. I’ve even seen cars disappear at the same time.
I’m not sure what happens to the people whose stuff is disappearing into these foreign creatures. They seem to disappear at the same time.
It’s like “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” except instead of stealing our bodies they are stealing our “stuff”.
Perhaps it is a governmental agreement with these aliens to consume our stuff so we have to go out and buy more stuff thus helping the economy.
Luckily they seem to end their migration invasion during the fall.
So watch out if one of these PODS lands in front of your house. You stuff will started disappearing.

There are no PODS. You are mistaken. Forget you ever saw them -- er, forget you THINK you saw them. Signed, Not the Pod People
