to Earth! Not all aliens are scary like the sci-fi movies would have them. The reason he was reluctant to take $20 is that on his home planet, likely one of the Peptides, they only use Jelly Beans as currency!
My roommate Greg was stranded on the I-5 in the Grapevine yesterday when his truck blew a radiator hose. He was given a ride by a strange, skinny guy with tattoos and unkempt hair who said he spends his time "driving along the freeway picking up things." He asked Greg if he could use his cell phone as he had been out of touch "for three days now." This was something of a more ominous Alien. Probably caught in a time warp, looking for the Mother Ship. Trying to restock it with blown tire treads. On the planet Zircon, old tire treads are a tasty treat like Black Licorice for us.
