Welcome to the show notes for episode 4 of Terrifyingly Beautiful.
Kevin, Kevin, Kevin... Alien abductions? Really? Okay, I sort of get it.
Before we get to the excitement of Kevin's childhood fear of being snatched up in the middle of the night by E.T., we take our obligatory tour of the things that stressed us out that week. It isn't very often I get a win as Team Kevin is usually correct 99.9% of the time. But during our intro conversation I correctly name the gender of the child in Life is Beautiful, the original judges on America's Got Talent and the fact that Alf was at times played by a real person. Ah, winning tastes so good!
Kevin's blame Robert Stack for his alien fear. What ever happened to him anyway? As a fan of Unsolved Mysteries, Kevin would be glued to the television as Mr. Stack described chilling tales of people who claim to have been abducted by aliens. This is where I stupidly refer to the Roswell event as Area 57. Ugh. I know it's Area 51 now. In Kevin's attempt to rationalize his alien abduction fear, he recounts two stories of supposedly legitimate abductions. The first involved a woman named Linda Napolitano from Manhattan. She claims she was abducted through her apartment window at 3:00 a.m. while she slept. She remembers being transported from the window the alien ship. Sounds crazy, right? Well, soon after law enforcement began to receive emails from people who claim to have witnessed the abduction. Don't you think they would have called the police while it was happening?
The second story describes the night in 1967 when Betty Andreasson claims to have been abducted. In this scenario, Betty was transported to the alien ship while one of the extraterrestrial creatures stayed in her home to keep watch over her family, all of whom had been placed in a paralysis trance. You can't make this up. I wasn't much help to Kevin as I simply replied that alien life is likely to be microscopic so he had nothing to worry about. He wasn't buying it.
