Writing prompt #1

You are a travel agent in in intergalactic travel agency. A newlywed couple wants to go to Earth for their honeymoon. You try to talk them out of it. (writing time: 10min)

To Earth? Really? But why? Why don’t you pick a more romantic location? Like Saturn … it has a ring on it, if you catch my drift. Or Venus. The planet of love. Wink-wink nudge-nudge. No? But earth! OK, let me tell you something about Earth: The weather is unstable, unreliable, chaotic! Imagine you and your beautiful bride lie on a beach and suddenly you get run over by a tsunami, a monster wave. You wouldn’t want that, would you? And they only have 24 hour days. You will have no time seeing anything because it’s always dark. Would you enjoy that?

And let me tell you, those aliens that inhibit Earth, those humans – no no no! You wouldn’t want to spend your honeymoon with them. They are loud, dirty, nose, obnoxious, they are contagious and will contaminate you with germs and bacteria of all kinds. That could really make you sick. They are not even able to make a proper Pan Galactic Gargleblaster. Romulan Ale? Forget it! Klingon Blood Wine? Not a chance!

Oh and they even don’t have interstellar space stations for space tourists. Do you know how hard it is to get to Earth in the first place? You have no idea! What are you saying? You want to go on an adventure? Let me tell you, getting married should be enough of an adventure for you.
