rocket of the damned

Sitting at the kitchen table during breakfast, Oldest Son’s eyes keep drifting towards an as-yet unopened toy rocket package on the counter.

Oldest Son: “Daddy, does that toy rocket go off of the Earth? To OTHER PLANETS?”

Me: “No, you can’t reach escape velocity with vinegar and baking soda. The picture on the outside of the box is very misleading.”

Oldest Son: “But Daddy…. what about the planet we go to WHEN WE DIE!?!

Me: “Umm… eat your yogurt.”

Reflection Question: What planet do you think Oldest Son was talking about? (Kolob from the Mormon Book of Abraham, the Doctor Who episode “Planet of the Dead”, something else?)”
