“What’s so great about saturn?”
“Well, we have some very delicious ice cream straight form our orbiting rings”
“Why do you talk that way?”
“Why? Do i get the dialect wrong?”
“No it’s just you talk so proper, people on earth don’t really talk that way anymore”
“Oh? Then how d they talk”
“Well, we talk with a more slanged speech i guess”
“You know, you’re not like most humans”
“You’re not like most aliens”
They leaned in.
Their lips parted.
He could feel her cool breath on hr lips.
And suddenly he opened his eyes and found a fan blowing air into his face

    That was cute. Might be worth it really exagerated the formality of her speech and the slang in his, but I loved the ending. Kind of makes me think of Spaceman Spiff.

    Oddly romantic sci -fi story, humorous.
