Caught in an affair

Life is certainly going to be more interesting with Aaron here.

I gave him the spare keys to my place so he could use my phone, computer etc while he is moving in to his place. Last night when I got home from work, I didn't see any sign of him around. When I opened the door to my apartment, a strange sight met my eyes. The lights had been dimmed, candles lit and soft music was playing. And sitting on my couch was a big mylar balloon of one of the little three eyed aliens from "Toy Story". I love those little aliens. "The claw... the claw chooses who will go... and who will stay."

I am standing there studying the scene when Aaron opens the apartment door opens behind me and starts to enter. He freezes. He looks from the alien to the candles to me. Then he points a finger at the poor balloon and shouts "Oh! Who is he?! What's he doing here? Sneaking around behind my back are you?!"

All I could do was stand there and sputter.

The funnier thing was Aaron meant to strap him into the passenger side of my car at work, but little did he know, due to parking lot construction, I was parked in a totally different lot than usual. He walked around morosely with the alien balloon for quite some time unsuccessfully searching for my car.

People must have thought they couldn't remember where they parked their spaceship.
