The Ballad of the Lovesick Astronaut

A woman with accomplishments stellar
Took fancy to another one's fella
For romance's survival
Deep sixing her rival
Her desperate heart did propel her

Discovery could not be permitted
Endeavor to conceal she committed
Inadequate thought
And hasty decisions wrought
Dim hopes that she will be acquitted

Now America's golden girl's tarnished
Her sad story exposed and unvarnished
The gossipy ilk
Huge ratings they'll milk
With tragedy their paychecks are garnished

This kind of stuff happens all the time at NASA. She just happened to have the misfortune of getting caught on a slow news day.

Brit:

Your kind of particularly conspicuous talent makes me real, real, jealous.

Hmmm. Now where did I put those Depends?

In reference to Brit's madness post, it occurs to me that her wearing of diapers indicates how around-the-bend she was. Even if she'd taken bathroom breaks every four hours, it still would have added less than an hour to her trip, and she HAD TO STOP FOR GAS ANYWAY.

So in effect, she was just avoiding going into restrooms, preferring to wet herself. She wasn't saving much time.

Skipper, I think it's Duck that gets the credit.

Peter:

Ouch.

Duck:

My humble apologies. The verses' quality was so darn good I attributed it to Brit without a second thought.

Now that I am the wiser, I will have to drive West instead of East.

And hope the Depends are up to the detour.

Skipper,

No apologies necessary. To be considered Brit-worthy is truly the highest compliment you could hae given me.
