I was visited each night by an alien from outer space. He couldn't speak English and I couldn't speak his language either. We managed to develop a form of language that we both understood.
The Alien, who I called Eric, was gathering examples of Earth's fauna and flora to take back to his own world for freaky experiments.

On Monday Eric held up 16 fingers and I knew that he wanted an Earth Vegetable to take back the following evening.

On Tuesday Eric held up 10 fingers and I knew that he wanted an Earth Bird to take back the following evening.

On Wednesday Eric held up 20 fingers and I knew that he wanted an Earth Plant to take back the following evening.

On Thursday Eric held up 2 fingers and I knew that he wanted an Earth Insect to take back the following evening.

I didn't turn up on Saturday evening because on Friday Eric held up 21 fingers.


Why didn't I turn up?
