Not Like the Movies

Harold was staring out the window.  Carol came up and asked, “What are you doing, staring off into space?”

Harold gave her a glance and shrugged his shoulders.  “Mom, I thought things would be different.  I thought we’d have lots of adventures.”

“Honey, we signed up for this and talked about it for many days.  I think you’re mixing up real life with the movies.  We are here to make history as the first family to establish this space station in orbit, not fight aliens and evil forces,” Carol said as she brushed her son’s hair out of his eyes.
