New Thing #160: Space Cadet

Today, in a backyard is suburban Philadelphia full of about 30 people (many of them kids), I launched a rocket. That sounds a bit more impressive than it might actually be- they were foam rockets and you launch them with your foot (or both your feet, if you're three and irascible). The toy was the hit of the party, and the source of many a tussle between cousins. Luckily, I was able to squeeze in a couple of turns. Seems that one stomp of my left foot packs about as much punch as an entire three-year-old. I'm not sure if that's cool or sad.

I envy you. I don't know which I envy you more: launching a rocket or being in suburban Philadelphia.
