Jake said, “I am so glad that I found you as I wasn’t sure that I would see you again. You were right behind me and then I looked back and didn’t see you anymore.” Judy replied, “Yea I had to take care of some business and I knew that I could catch up with you. I wanted to leave a signal just in case any others of our species are looking for us, so I dropped some of my scent back there. I figured rather than pooping randomly, we could drop our aroma at strategic locations.” Jake said, “That was very social of you Judy, but I think we are on our own on this alien planet. We have to be careful here, as you never know how much information will be revealed about us from a good sniff of our poop or urine. I know that I have picked up a lot of unique scents since we arrived here yesterday. No one is coming for us, we left that world behind and we should probably be doing our business underground from now on, to keep our selves safe from predators. It is just you and me against the world now kid.”
