Dr. Guzman saw her in obvious distress at the side of the road. He stopped the car and rushed to her aid.
“What are you doing here?” he said. “Aliens just landed and all of San Ignacio de Velasco is evacuating!”
The woman pulled open her blouse, revealing her swollen belly.
“Oh, pregnant? I can help.”
He pulled her blouse open further, and that’s when he saw the tiny humanoid body in her side. Everything was out but the head.
“Ah…you’re the alien!”
“Sorry. It’s an emergency.”
He pointed to the humanoid. “This is how you give birth?”
She chuckled. “We give birth like you humans. It’s Our sex act that’s really different. Unfortunately, my husband is little help with my problem.”
“An abandoning father? The brute! So what’s this?” He pointed to the tiny humanoid jutting from her side.
“I told you our procreation is different. That’s my husband.”
