Re: Tell my story


The Atomic Punk

Original Character by DC-Lover; Story by The Atomic Punk

Sheldon, Sheldon, Sheldon… what did you get yourself into? This is just crazy. Why did you volunteer? Heck, why did you enlist in the first place? Look at this get-up! When these “stabilizers” are engaged, you can’t move your arms. I don’t know about this.

Think about it, though. The Wright Brothers ran a bicycle shop. Some 40 years later, Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier. The Russians sent Yuri Gagarin into space less than 20 years after that. Oh, yeah, he died in a plane crash. That’s going to be me. They’re going to shoot me off like a bottle rocket. Pow! No more Sheldon.

They sent a man to the moon using an abacus and protractors. My cell phone has more computer power than that. So maybe the engineers got this one right. I bet the crew of the Columbia were crapping their flight suits the whole time.

Before we light this roman candle, I just want to say, Mom, Dad, I love you. Take care of my boxer puppy Ruffy if this goes wrong. This is it. This is what it’s all about. Being someone. Not just some kid from South Dakota. 3… 2… 1…

Holy ! It’s working. This is so cool! Yeah, baby! Captain Sheldon Marcus, United States Air Force. First in flight!
