“It all began with the chicken in the end of the road,” she said.

“Pardon?” I gestured. “Could you say that again?”

Miss Sanderson reached out and tapped the translation device on the table, then picked it up and fiddled with its settings. She was the ugliest female of her species I’d ever seen– obscenely symmetrical features, pale hair and complexion, long limbs–and yet forever twirling a finger in her hair like she was trying to proposition me.

Wow. Now, I should preface this with that fact that I listened while driving home a 2:30am. But this was one strange story. I really liked it, but I'm not sure I really got his home world bit. Did his home work exist anymore? Is this a temporal of locational wormhole? How did he get here? What's this bit about dying for immortality?

The Dribblecast, we don't care if you sound like an idiot.
