|"MAJOR SPACE PEEP"|
Helena was referring to a "An Astronaut's Guide to Life," by Canada's favourite regular guy, Commander Colonel Chris Hadfield.
And my response was: "What is the possible upside to my reading Hadfield's story?" Not that I have anything against Canada's most notoriously terrific man, per se. It's just that he happens to be, like, perfect.
Chris Hadfield is:
A) A astronaut: When you're a astronaut you don't have to follow rules, even grammatical ones. Hadfield also creates art so pretty I'd put it up on my wall.
|MINI-ME: And the mini missus|
C) Everything else, besides: Husband, dad, athlete, the whole megillah. He's written a children's book called The Darkest Dark. He has an album out, "Space Sessions; Songs from a Tin Can," which contains the Neil Youngish "Beyond the Terra."
D) So maybe I'm Just Jealous: Moi? Envious of Monsieur Perfect? I know what you're going to say. "Pete you've written songs, too." And I thank you for that, but did I mention the line of mini-Commander Hadfield toys?
E) Don't you remember the bobble-head of you and Helena that your daughters Ev and Ria commissioned? Still.
Once a knight's
G) So you're probably doing okay: Seems so. Maybe the astronaut's not flawless after all. Helena might be right. I hate when that happens.
H) Richard Branson: Why'd you have to go bring HIM into this conversation? Just when I was coming around on Hadfield.
I) Still ain't reading his book.
