Spaced Out Fairy Tales

“In the spirit of Judy Garland we could all collectively wish upon a star and try and change our destinies.  When you wish upon a star, it makes no difference who you are, that kind of deal.

Perhaps it is time for us, to just think about moving to another planet altogether.  We cannot seem to live in peace and harmony on this one, we have done so much ecological damage to it now, it most likely cannot survive.  Might be time to colonize Mars.  

SpaceX founder and billionaire Elon Musk is laying out his plans for a colony on Mars, and they are specific. Musk has already mapped out an approximate number of people he imagines living in the Mars colony (80,000), as well as how much a ticket to Mars might cost–$500,000.  This is where you should insert the folks on Jupiter and Saturn are most likely saying … Uh oh, there goes the neighborhood.

It could very well be time for us as a race of people to make decisions and forget about the politicians.  In the spirit of Judy Garland we could all collectively wish upon a star and try and change our destinies.  When you wish upon a star, it makes no difference who you are, that kind of deal.  I remember as a young lad my father told me a fable such as that one night when I was but a small tyke, I still remember lying there in wonder and bewilderment..

It went something like this … He said …. YOUR mother told me that I was to come in here and tell you a fable or a bedtime story. 

So pay attention:  Once upon a time, a Prince asked a beautiful Princess, “Will you marry me?”

The Princess said, “NO!”

And the Prince lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and banged skinny long-legged, big breasted broads and hunted and fished and raced cars and went to naked bars and dated women half his age and drank whiskey, beer and Captain Morgan and never heard bitching and never paid child support or alimony and nailed cheerleaders and kept his house and guns and ate Spam and potato chips and beans and blew enormous farts and never got cheated on while he was at work and all his friends and family thought he was cool as hell and he had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up.  The End

Then he went into the kitchen for another beer and I was told to go to sleep.

OOO

  1. Your recalling of that story your Dad told you reminds me of the comic Chris Titus who appears on the Comedy Channel every now and then on DTV. Chris’ Dad was Ken Titus who I attended high school with. Chris sprinkles “like” stories within his routines about how his Dad (much like yours in your story) was gruff and other things around the house. If you ever get a chance to catch Chris, you’ll get alot of laughs, and some soul searching too when he gets into some serious stuff that happened to him around the house ‘tween Mom ‘n Dad.
