Have you seen her shoes?

Dimples told me she wanted to go into outer space today.  Yes, she's only 22 months old.  Funny Girl piped up that outer space was very far away, therefore we couldn't go.  I remembered a quote I'd added to my other blog.

"Space isn't remote at all. It's only an hour's drive away if your car could go straight upwards."

--Fred Hoyle
So I told Funny Girl that space is only 60 miles away, but straight up.  She thought about it for a moment, then said with regret "I can't find my rocket shoes today."

  1. LOL! Mr. Sweetcheeks actually has rocket shoes, but unfortunately they don't fly. :)

    Cool to think about how close space is. What a fragile little bubble protects us.
