I Never Did Find Out What It’s Like In Space

Us kids of the 1980s really dreamed out going to space.

We girls dreamed about going to Space Camp with dreamy Tate Donovan. The boys dreamed about going to Space Camp with dreamy and glittery Kelly Preston.

That's Joaquin Phoenix in the middle. I thought you would need to know.

Because we recognized that Space Camp was probably wicked expensive, we dreamed about winning a trip to Space Camp on Double Dare. After all, my parents didn’t even have a pool. They made is run through a sprinkler. I highly doubted they’d send me to Space Camp what with it’s trillion dollar tuition.

Just don't make me climb up the f---ing slide. I'd stink at that.

But my parents did not love me enough to even let me go to Florida to be on Double Dare, so instead they took me to the Boston Museum of Science.

It’s fun to find out what it’s REALLY like in space.

Years later I DID get to see Gravity in 3D and IMAX, so I guess I got to go to space, kind of sort of.

Mom and Dad–you are forgiven.
