Sorry, Anna. I obviously got you confused with some of the many British writers on Medium. The double-decker bus thew me off. Although I know they are around in some US citites. Vegas and New York? I’ve never been to Philadelphia, sadly.
I should have known better by the lack of “u”s in words like rumor and color. Maybe you could pretend to be British, like Madonna did when she was starting out.
I always associated Little Green Men with Leprechauns and Space Aliens. Maybe it’s a Philly thing? I prefer Philly cheesesteak, though. Still, it doesn’t matter. It works in the story.
Way back, even before my time, people used to say drunks saw pink elephants. But I don’t think anyone says that anymore.
But like I always say (sometimes) “It’s fiction. I made it up!”
