D'Yer Wanna Be A Spaceman
All this talk of Space Cadets, tonight on Channel 4 which I'll almost certainly neglect to watch, reminds me of something that happened at Primary School. I must've been in Class 4 (Year 3 as it is now), which puts me at about 8 I suppose. We had a substitute teacher covering for a bit, and in pure Mr Bergstrom style, she'd bought some fancy dress to win us over. Except instead of a cowboy uniform, it was a spacesuit, and whoever did the best work would get to dress up in it. A cunning ploy, and one that had us all beavering away at whatever task it was that we'd been set. Anyway, I sadly didn't win, so my friend Daniel got to put on the suit. Always the bridesmaid, never the spaceman. It obviously affected me a fair bit at the time, as I can still remember it, crystal clear, 17 odd years later. Now I just have to deal with the fact that I probably won't get to be an astronaut in real life now, either...
