I heard the engines first. A delicious deep growl that sent shivers of excitement down my spine.
I’m not sure what I expected. I sure as hell did not expect to find a rocket ship in my living room.
Not just any rocket ship. My rocket ship!
It was totally awesome! And by that I mean evoking feelings of stomach churning fear and childlike wonder.
I should’ve wondered if the ship was aerodynamic and met NASA guidelines. But, seriously? It was a ROCKET SHIP!
I stopped to grab a towel, because I’m not a total idiot and jumped on board.
It was like the TARDIS. I mean way bigger on the inside. Very 70s retro.
The dashboard had big buttons labeled easy things like UP and DOWN and ON and OFF.
And a spot for an iPod.
And a cup holder for my tea.
So, I stopped off to collect a few of my favourite people.
Did a fly by my office to show off – like you wouldn’t?
And then we totally rocked the “going where no man has gone before” thing.
Yeah, so we’re currently orbiting a little planet somewhere North of the Horsehead Nebula for some R&R before our reservation at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
If you’re there, pop by or table and say ‘Hi!’
The rocket ship
My kids and I each took a panel and painted it for The Husband and The Father (depending) for his birthday a year or two back.
