The every day sights when living in a science fiction story
Well, I kid you not, some people do not appreciate that they are living in a science fiction story and they are the cast!
Forgive me, if I am awed every day.
I am awed at the science and at the jaw dropping experience to talk with some of most brilliant minds on the planet. (They might point out, that I spelled brilliant incorrectly, but at least most of the brilliant folks are very tolerant of the low IQ folks like myself.)
They nod sagely at my immature questions and enthusiasm for working at the worlds busiest space port, with a space force right across the Banana River. (Rico's Roughnecks" training for an attack on Klendathu?) --And they may not every talk to me again for mentioning Rico. ------Just a guess.
Science fiction story with problems?
I realized my truck clock was wrong when the Atlas lifted off before I could get to the river. Launch on time, I was late.
