ALF watching the sun rise in Seattle

Since arriving in Seattle, ALF and I have been having a great time. We played video games, went to a museum and stayed up late last night watching old monster movies. This morning when I woke up I noticed ALF was in a more contemplative mood and I gave him some time alone as he watched the sun rise over the Space Needle. What brought on this sudden change in mood after a weekend of lighthearted hijinks? Did seeing the Space Needle make him nostalgic for his home planet? Does he miss his life with the Tanner family?


After the sun had fully risen he turned towards me, slowly, and asked if I knew of a breakfast place that might have cat on the menu.

  1. It makes me wonder. He was awfully cryptic when I asked him about why he was staring at the Space Needle for so long. I would have pressed him more on it, but I was distracted by the delicious breakfast burritos he made for us, then spent the rest of the day trying to find the cat, who somehow got loose.
