Spritzer Knows the Truth

Posted: April 1, 2017 in What Pegman Saw


The first team on Mars ~ Three women and a dog
Length of mission ~ Fifteen years
What was discovered ~ Depends on who you ask

Janie: “We found three species of corn on the south side of the planet. Lord knows who planted the seeds or how they grew in those harsh conditions. Fields were well-tended, although we never detected any sign of intelligent beings.”
Sarah: “Footprints everywhere. Gigantic two-toed something or others. Creeped me out. Glad we never saw who or what left them.”
Petra: “Wind blew all the time. Sand looked like the Sahara Desert on a bad day. Not a mark anywhere. No sign of life, animal or plant. Nothin’.”
Spritzer: Dang those women for dragging me to Mars. They all went mad four years after landing. Saw things that weren’t there; didn’t see things that were. My journals were very well kept. But no one will read them.

  1. Dear Lish,

    I’m not the only one sharing laughs this week. I can only imagine what Spritzer’s journal looks like. Sounds like he marked his territory well. Too cute.

    Spritzer would not be the first dog to think his human companions were crazy, but sounds like he has more reason that many. I’d expect many a dog-eared page in that journal. 😉

  5. Fantasy rules the day.


  6. This proves that men and dogs are definitely from Mars or at least know more about it than women.

    Love those voices, every one. Pity you only had 150-words as I’d like to know more, especially why the dog thinks they all went mad.

    Great slant on the photo, Alicia. As others have said, it’s a dog’s life – especially when you’re dragged to Mars 🙂
