Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," with malice toward nuns and charity toward owls!
Just kidding about nuns. I've never had much dealing with them. I think overall they must be a good lot, with some exceptions of course. They must save a bundle by not ever needing marriage counseling. Talk about a situation where the husband is always right!
Ah. As you see, we at "The Gods Are Bored" are back in the bad saddle and ready to rumble. It's spring break this week, and that means a new post every day! Oh joy!
Just now I dropped the Spare off at high school. I was listening to the news radio, and honestly, here's what the guy said:
"The space shuttle Discovery just made a successful launch. Where is it going? Stay tuned to find out!"
I guess I should have stayed tuned, because I've been under the impression that the space shuttle goes into space. But heck, I could be wrong. Maybe its destination this time was Disney World. Maybe it's going to do a flyover of Paramus, NJ and then land in the Hudson Valley. Could be that those astronauts needed to get to Kansas ASAP, and the space shuttle was just sitting there, all fueled up with nowhere to go.
I know that these news stations all use teasers to get us through the commercials. As teasers go, promising us that we soon will learn the destination of a recently lifted-off space shuttle was sucky at best.
Gosh. Do you think the Space Shuttle Discovery is actually headed for Olympus? That would be awesome!
Maybe I should have stayed tuned.
