When Ben discovers an alien living in his house, he is not thrilled, and neither is the alien!

Ben is upset when he finds an alien living in his house. It looks strange, and doesn’t let Ben watch TV. But the "alien," who is Ben's grandfather, is equally unhappy. He's convinced Ben is an unkempt monster. A creative story on generational gaps.
