Chapter 241: Odd Aliens
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 203: Waddle / Waffle / Wattle at dw100.

Summary: Some aliens just strike Rose as funny.

Not wanting to appear rude, Rose hid her grin behind her hand. How was she supposed to remain straight-faced when confronted by aliens who resembled humanoid turkeys?

They didn’t have feathers; in fact their heads were completely bald, aside from a bony blue crest, longer and darker on the males than on the females. They also had short, stubby noses rather than beaks. But from their jaws and throats dangled long, fleshy wattles, blue like their crests, which flapped and wobbled hypnotically as they talked.

If she didn’t get out of here soon she was going to burst out laughing!
