Alien working in a store in a busy neigborhood blending in with us.

In the summr of 1989 I had been on my new job for about a year. I'm in to health food products, and a co-worker told me that there was one near my place of employment. She said that she believed it was a small store. At 5:00 P.M., I left my job and started looking for the store. I figured that it would be nice to be able to purchase items like vitamins, etc. on my lunch hour. By the time you get off from work and travel to these little stores, they're closed. I walked down the street slowly, looking on both sides of the avenue, trying to find the store. Eventually, I came upon a small store that I figured had a good chance of being it. The building above it was abrownstone that was boarded up. I steped down the one or two steps and opened the door to the shop. Almost as soon as I walked in, I had a feeling that this wasn't the best place. There was a man there. He was my height 5"6", skinny, dark, but otherwise normal. I have a very clear, loud voice, and because of my previous vocal instructions over time, somewhat loud. I asked the man, whether he had whatever the herbal remedy was that I wanted. He became very angry and said in a voice that was almost as loud as mine"you got some nerve coming in here with all that attitude." I immediately answered him with "what the hell are you talking about atitude. Without saying another word, He aimed his finger at my heart and something that I coiuldn't see hit me in the heart. I have ben know for having a lot ot courage so me being me, I just stood there and stirred at him. Then he said, "I could have just killed you." I then realized that I was in more danger than I realized. I also knew what I had accidentally come upon. There was a conversation that followed where I sought of asked where he was from, but he only said that it was a long way from here.There was great emphysis on long. Every time he moved around the store, you never saw him move to another location, he just appeared at that spot. Some how, I was asleep and while still standing, I felt my feet being kind of numb. I had been standing in that same spot for a couple of hours. When I finally got up the nerve to say that I was leaving, he said" we are leaving tomorrow to. That would have been Wednesday. I walked to the door, and as I looked around he said, "when you get home tonight I want you to say xxxxxxx. I didn't say it then and I won't say it now. As far as I am concerned, that could have been some password the he could have used to take me aboard his space ship. As I placed my hans on the door, his face blurred and changed to what he really looked like. He was still my height, very dark, but his eyes were large but that skin around the eyes reminded me of a crocodile. Ther was a thin yellow line running from one corner of the eye to the other. And he laughed out loud. He surely wasn't pretty. I really wanted to ask more questions, but thought better of it. On Thursday, the day after he said they were leaving, I walked down to that store, near the curb. I wanted to see if there was anybody there. Would you believe, the place looked as though no one had ever been there. It was empty.

I rode past on the bus ther other day, and the place had been undergoing renovations.

It's now a nice looking brownstone with a store. I'd like to know who rented it before. The things that I saw him do, couldn't have been done by anyone other than an alien. I'm now actually glad that I had the experience. It told me what I suspected all along, that we are living with these people and cannot tell the difference. When I saw how he just changed his appearance within one or two seconds, I was surprized, to say the least.

This really happened in 1989. I was sought of afraid to mention it because I didn't know whether or not I should. Don't know who you're speaking to these days.
