An ode to my NASA mug...
NASA mug, oh NASA mug.
You are mug amazing.
Although made in China,
You represent America. American
hopes and dreams of a future fantastic.
When I drink of thee I pretend I'm
an engineer building rocket-ships to
the stars even though I had to take college algebra twice and still use my fingers to count.
When holding thee I feel like a controller at Mission Control
or a specialist at the Jet Propulsion Lab. For just an instant.
For then my green tea is finished and
I am teaching history again. But NASA
mug, for just a moment...a brief shining moment, I was among the exploding stars and nebulae.
Thank you NASA mug.
