Overpriced freeze-dried gloop that actual astronauts wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot space stick…. It can only mean one thing…
EMPEROR PICKLETINE RIDES AGAIN… but for the last time.
For reasons I need not go into, I have taken MANY field trips to the National Air and Space museum. Not just visits, but actual field trips.
Last week, I took what will probably be my last.
Like Mr Good Clean Fun, I was a chaperone, but not a teacher. And like MR GCF, I lost a kid near the Time exhibit. (Turns out he was just in the bathroom)
But if he had been at this exhibit….
… I would have flipped out!!
Ironically, most of the kids I was with had not read (or had forgotten or were not interested in) Emperor Pickletine.
But I enjoyed seeing the scenes one last time!
I may visit the museum again on my own someday, but… probably never on a field trip.
Farewell, Bell x-1…
