Time for Writer’s Workshop! Head on over to Mama Kat’s to join in.
This week, I’m choosing prompt 2: If you could witness (or take part in) any event in history, what would it be? Why? (inspired by Texan Mama from Who Put Me In Charge Of These People?).
It took me about two seconds to come up to the answer to this question. I would be a part of the Apollo 11 mission, and, on July 20, 1969, I would muscle my way past Neil Armstrong and be the first person to walk on the moon.
Why did I choose this? Here are just a few reasons.
- Only 11 people in all of history have walked on the moon. I want to be one of them. (And I want to be the first one.)
- You weigh much less on the moon. In fact, I found out at Moon Connection.com, that I would only weight 26.4 pounds on the moon! What a painless diet! (By the way, if you attempt to figure out how much I weigh in real life by using a reverse calculation, it is all over between us.)
- I want to bounce around on the surface of the moon.
- I want to see what Earth looks like from the moon.
- I want to experience a rocket launch that I know ends up safely. (None of that Apollo 13 nonsense for me!)
Putting aside the fact that I was less than 2 years old during the Apollo 11 mission, let’s imagine what I might have looked like on the mission using the magic of Face in Hole (my “go to” site for making posts 75.4% funnier).
