I’m A Rocket Man


She packed my bags last night pre flight
Zero hour nine a.m.
And I’m gonna be high, as a kite by then
I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife
It’s lonely out in space
On such a timeless flight

I’m heading to Mars! You read that right, I’m one of a limited few people who are being sent to Mars on March 4, 2016. There’s so much to do before then. I need to: say proper goodbyes to family and friends, get in better shape, get my housing and job affairs in order, find “The One”, marry her, create a better emotional space send-off than this, and so much more! I’ve said for years that, when I die, I want my ashes scattered in space. Now I can make it to space without all that pesky death. Wait, perhaps my “The One” will be joining me on my journey to Mars and I won’t have to worry about creating a better send-off (not that it would be too difficult). I’m excited people, truly excited.
