There's something strange going on in SW Ontario...
When I first moved here a few years ago, Leamington seemed like such a nice friendly little town.
The tourism booth welcomed visitors from near and far.
Known as the Tomato Capital of Canada, it was a place to plant and grow things. Everyone went about their lives in a happy way, running their little family stands.
But lately, things have changed. People seem to be moving around in a trance, almost like they were sleepwalking, avoiding eye contact. What’s happening to the town?!
I decided to go for a drive and see if I could find a reason for the dreadful change. And that’s when I saw it, truck after truck being brought into the heart of the downtown, each one heaped to overflowing with strange red pods. It seemed somehow familiar…wait, the pods, that’s it!
And then I drove further to the edge of town, and saw the endless rows of greenhouses, acres and acres of greenhouses, everywhere, each one no doubt harboring a terrible red secret. Inside, the pods are being grown by the millions.
…and when they are ripe and ready, and when the people fall asleep, they snatch away their human bodies, replacing them with their strange alien life forms!
I must warn everybody, I must, but I’m getting so sleepy…so…slee..py…
