If we have anything to say about it, it will not be the last time you see Coni and I.They are so wonderful I wish we'd been able to spend more time together, but it won't be my last visit with @docsoliday1 and Connie, I'm sure!
We would have loved more time also, but didn't want to interfere with your plans either.
For me, it was because they were warned about the danger because of the extreme cold and they (upper level NASA folks) decided to go anyway because it had already been delayed a couple times and because they were having school kids around the country watching. In my mind, all the MORE reason to scrub the launch if it's not 100% safe. While the 2nd one was surely tragic, it was one in which they really had no choice anyway. They could not stay in space and could not make repairs prior to re-entry. It was really a matter of hoping (or praying or both) it would survive the re-entry. The crew and NASA KNEW it and they might not survive, but there was nothing that could be done about it.I understand that completely.
I don't know if it's because the first
one was more shocking (because it had
never happened before, not because it
was any more or less tragic), or if it was
because of there being a teacher on
board which brought it closer to home...
or if there's another reason.
Wow. Can I have who's the crazier for $200 please, Alex.I just had a thought!
"So I woke up four hours early
and got to the park 30 minutes early
and stood in line until it opened.
Then I was lockstepped with several
hundred rabid tourists... but I didn't
wait in line for the ride! How about you?"
"I slept in until 10am, took a long hot shower,
made my way to the empty tapstyles and then
stood in line for 30 minutes for the ride."
"Ha! What a sucker! You stood in line for 30 minutes!"
gI'm sure not!
You can't go to Florida anymore
without Doc tracking you down
and thrusting a cheescake
into your arms!
Well, now that you've said that, it's a distinct possibility you might not get another cheesecake.
Seriously, though...I love dismeets and I have to use the cheesecake as a bribe to get people to be crazy enough to meet up with me. You've done it more than once, so we know your craziness level.
Okay, even more seriously now...I don't actually use the cheesecakes as bribes...I just enjoy when I can do something that other people enjoy. Whether it be cheesecake, buying a kid a toy, being demolished in pool, attempting to buy someone ice cream or meeting up with a suc....err, friend at KSC.
Yes, I KNOW you were teasing, so not at all offended.
