Going to the Sun...


A young student recently told me he wanted to be an astronaut when he grew up. I said, “That’s terrific! Where do you want to go?”

“I’m going to build a rocket and fly to the Sun!” he proudly exclaimed.

Trying hard to be supportive, the innate teacher in me had to ask, “Don’t you think it might be a little hot?”

The young boy confidently looked up at me and almost with disdain pronounced, “I’m going at night, DUH!”

What could I say? Sometimes the simplest solutions escape us.
