An Olympic Tale
Today I'd like to write about my experience at the olympic games. It's something like a fair tale about the so called "Olympic spirit".
One day, near Piccadilly Circus, While I was in London during the Olympics, I saw an alien.
I tried to take a picture of him, but as he saw that I got him, he quickly jumped far far away in the sky.
So I can just try to draw him. It looked like this.
He was so eager to get away from me that he lost a piece of paper that fell from his pocket. I recollect it from the ground, and this is what was written on it.
ALPHA BASE: Hey CVD56, how are those humans? are they quarrelsome? Are they dangerous? Do we need to getting rid of them?
CVD56: I wouldn't call them dangerous, I would rather call them immature. They fight also with their friends, they sometimes kill each other for no reason, they use really poor excuses just to have a reason to start a war.
ALPHA BASE: Lovely, I can wipe them out in a second. Let me press this but....
CVD56: No, wait! Some other times they become incomprehensibly cheerful, and those times they just look like little, harmless, funny, creatures.
ALPHA BASE: Give me an example!
CVD56: For example, every four years they choose a venue, a date, where the youngest and most in shape of them would meet each other to play. They call this "Olympics".
ALPHA BASE: And those who don't play? What do they do during this time?
TCVD56: They just watch the other guys playing. look at this guy, for example.
ALPHA BASE: But why?
CVD56: Because they like it, they enjoy it. When there is "Olympics" everyone have fun.
ALPHA BASE: It sounds so weird if I think about that, all the people of an entire planet that start to play every four years. It's enough to drive you mad! What if every bird of the sky every four years starts to swoop from the sky till the ground. It doesn't make sense!
CVD56: Actually I don't understand it neither. But I think they are celebrating themselves. They are happy to be humans.
ALPHA BASE: mmm. And what kind of plays do they play?
CVD56: Very simple plays, like Kick the ball, run as fast as you can, run as fast as you can jumping over hurdles, leaps, back flips, jump into water, jump as high as you can, throw the spear very far away, this kind of things. And, very important, at the beginning and at the end of these games they make a very big party.
ALPHA BASE: They apparently don't need too much to amuse themselves.
ALPHA BASE: So, do you like them?
CVD56: I do! I'm really having a lot of fun on planet earth, I'm sorry I had to hide myself in order not to scare them. I'm willing to let them in peace, for now. Let's seek and destroy another planet.
ALPHA BASE: Ok, we will give them four years more. But guess what? Next time give me a call too, I also want to see this "Olympics".
Did you also enjoyed the Olympics like our friend and saviour CVD56?
Don't you think that the Games are one of the moments in which the mankind gives his best?
