Fess in Spaaaaaaace!

I had a dream last night that I was asked to be on a crew to help send Professor Longhair to space. He really wanted to go, and for some reason it was in a Mercury capsule. I was helping him get into that old-style Alan Shepard silvery spacesuit, and then into that tiny spacecraft.

(Technical incongruity … it was a a Redstone booster but he was going to be doing orbits, which required an Atlas booster because Redstone could only do suborbital boosts. I’m going to have to have a word with my Dreamland Science Consultant.)

He was really into it. I couldn’t wait to hear the songs that would come out of this trip but I woke up too soon.
