A perfect launch that almost made me cry
(But as we know, and yes, you all may scoff
I often seem to have caught in my eye
Particulates at launch time, causing tears).
Today was to be my first meet for drinks
With Sigler, yes, the FDO of fears
Both great and small. But Friday now, methinks
Is when that's to occur. I am content
To wait 'til then. A party's in the works:
Scott Sigler, others too, who will have spent
Some days in Laramie, diligent as clerks
At The Launch Pad, learning space science and
Hobnobbing with Phil Plait and Haldeman.
