INTERVIEW with Lawrence P. Mead, Part II
[The following is Part II of The New Elsewhere’s interview with Lawrence P. Mead, a former scientist working with certain aspects of the extraterrestrial presence on Earth, as well as “reverse engineering” technology. Mr. Mead expressed that I make clear that the name “Lawrence P. Mead” is a pseudonym for the convention of this writing. However, he is not, nor is he a “composite” of numerous people.]
JAP: So, you have seen this man shot, and you have had to change your pants. Please take it from there.
LPM: Well, I was somewhat apprehensive about returning to that particular place, but I did happen by it the next week. Needless to say, there was a new person working there.
JAP: Of course. Anything remarkable about this new person?
LPM: Well, yes. He was about 7 feet tall, rather broad shouldered and had the most astoundingly blond hair I’ve seen. Also, he had mesmerizing blue eyes.
JAP: Really. This must have struck you as deeply strange.
LPM: Yes, the hair did.
JAP: The hair.
JAP: Why the hair and nothing else?
LPM: You see, my wife wanted a similar hair color but, at the time, didn’t know where to get that particular shade. I mean, it was so blond it was white.
JAP: I wasn’t aware you were married.
LPM: So white is was almost clear.
JAP: Back to your wife, Mr. Mead. I wasn’t aware that you were married.
JAP: I say, I wasn’t aware you were married.
LPM: Married? Oh, yes. I hadn’t been. I’d been given one.
JAP: “Given one”?
LPM: I’d been given a wife. To blend into the community.
JAP: (laughing) How nice! Did they give you a dog and cat, as well?
LPM: They were in the fridge.
JAP: I beg your pardon.
LPM: Getting back to the hangar, I decided not to go in that day. For one thing, they had clearly replaced the door. The door now was solid with a window in the middle, near the top, with – well, not bars – but a wire works within the glass. Not sure why they changed this.
JAP: Your dog and cat were in the…
LPM: But I did try to use the lavatory in an adjoining room, where I literally had to step over the alien corpses to get to the restroom door.
JAP: Now, let’s go back for a second…
LPM: The lavatory itself was rather nicely appointed and looked, again, very much like the room in which I was originally interviewed. It had this quite annoying anti-gravity aspect to it that was, shall I say, inconvenient at best. Particularly when I –
JAP: I’m sorry, hold on just a moment. You were in a bathroom that had anti-gravity effects?
LPM: Yes. And it was most puzzling that there was a control panel of some sort nearby, which I attempted to access.
JAP: And what happened?
LPM: I was looking for bathroom tissue.
LPM: I didn’t find any.
JAP: I get that, but did anything else happen?
LPM: I’ll say. The room shook, as if stopping while it was in motion. I know that sounds silly.
JAP: What did you do, Mr. Mead?
LPM: Well, I got up and went out. And I was on Mars.
LPM: Or Schenectady.
JAP: Why Schenectady?
LPM: Well, this iguana standing nearby said I was in Schenectady. Kept saying it, really. Rather annoying, really.
JAP: An iguana.
JAP: Lawrence P. Mead, it has truly been a pleasure speaking with you. Thank you so much for your time.
LPM: It was my pleasure.
