A Terrific, Loony Season's Greeting
Terri- Luni dialogue of Season’s Greetings
Luni: I am used to going around you but I never thought of saying Hi!
Terri: I am so used to turning around my own self I often ignore you except once in a full moon!
Luni: Without me you can’t function. I keep your waters in high and low tides.
Terri: Oh yes, a big lot that helps! How about when you made those Giant waves?
Luni: That was not my fault. That was because you cracked up in quakes.
Terri: So, you had no part in the Tsunami!
Luni: Don’t change the subject! How about your avalanches and earth slips, you terrible creature?
Terri: Whatever you say, I am the ones human beings love. They live here.
Luni: Sour grapes! They tried hard to land on me.
Terri: I have a Sunny friend who gives me light and energy! Your light is what is reflected off him!
Luni: Without Sunny, you earthlings will perish! But I can manage with my beings!
Terri: So you have ‘beings’?What are they? Bacteria? Our men who visited you couldn’t detect any other beings!
Luni: Incompetent, incapable idiots they were! They won’t find out my secrets anytime soon!
Terri: OK, OK! I only wanted to wish a Happy Festive Season and Prosperous 2018!
Luni: In fact, that’s the same reason I said ‘Howdy’! To wish earthlings a really Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year!
Terri: That’s welcome! We have special beings here, have you heard of Batch 1962?
Luni: Of course! They are a brainy, witty bunch! I hear words, like ‘speedy, lucky, rohini, sumathi,nihal even professor and anonymous!
Terri: So, you want to wish them all?
Luni: Yes of course a Very Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year 2018!
Terri: Same from me too!
