In another solar system on a planet not too unlike our own, mating rituals continue. T’was ever thus and probably always will be. A chance meeting at the office water hole to ask out the party in question. Greetings at her domicile door with small tokens of affection. A dinner at an intimate lil’ place, a stroll in the park followed by a picture show and perhaps a cherry soda afterwards. A good night kiss, an invitation for “coffee” and then, wait a minute! This doesn’t look like how we do it here on earth, or does it? ! Oh well, I guess it’s a small universe after all....Happy Hunting!
