A few weeks ago I received a letter informing me that they had changed insurance companies and sent along the paperwork letting me know what all this company's insurance covered. Standard normal legal mumbo-jumbo but something caught my eye. I was reading what they say are the "Perils Insured Against." It's a listing of what would mostly be considered natural disasters, but also includes such things as "Strikes, Riot or Civil Commotion," "Burglary" or "Collapse of [the] building...other than by earthquake." What caught my eye though was line (f) which reads, "Aircraft, Self-propelled Missiles or Spacecraft." That's right, my storage unit is insured against little green men trying to appropriate my belongings, taking them back to their Mother Ship and then on to parts unknown.
Truthfully, I am actually grateful that spacecraft are covered. You may choose to laugh at me and/or call me a lier, but I have, in my almost 35 years, seen two UFOs. Maybe they knew then that one day I would own what the "Earth" would deem completely useless, but on their planet would be priceless? But that, my friends, is another blog entry altogether.
