Dear Diary (Roasted Sweet Potatoes)

My screams did nothing but make me hoarse, my struggling did nothing  but get me bruised — I have to figure out a way to accept my life here on the “post” — as it’s called.

They  painted me silver.  I’m like a newborn alien baby— silver, shivering and afraid.

I think the  leader  must be sick.  He has a rash all over his body.  They won’t let me near him.

They squirt orange goop into my mouth—night and day.  I think it’s some kind of creature or maybe a computer program.

I found out that I was snatched by mistake— there was a false positive light spike near my house.

I have an escape plan.  No more orange goop for me.  Every chance I get —  I will spit it at them!

Back from isolation — my spit-a-thon was a bad idea!  On the bright side— I have a new hobby — recipes for the orange goop.  This morning I had roasted sweet potatoes.  Tomorrow, and the next day,  and the next day after that, I’m going to have more roasted sweet potatoes.
