"Good morning." I politely replied.

So far so good, I thought.

The fake glasses I wore displayed a digital map of the layout. Room 99 was first on my list.

"There he is!" the same woman said to three angry aliens. "He's not one of us... Mr. Schaffer never says good morning back!"

I fled...

    Ah man!! I wanted to see what was in room 99. And I absolutely loved the joke about Area 50 already being taken as a name. This had everything I love...little details, humor, suspense. Really great work, Lamar!! Congratulations on Top Story!!
