We actually had two early astronauts from my area, both McDivitt and Al Worden, and so we had a small space center built on our community college campus. Every year without fail through elementary school my class went on a field trip there. By the time I saw McDivitt in person at age 9 or 10, all I could do was giggle about him wearing the 'going to the bathroom' underwear I'd seen on display so many times and I wondered if he still ate the freeze-dried ice cream every kid bought from the gift shop.

I've spent countless hours in casinos, but I never play slot machines.

My son hasn't met McDivitt that I know of, but he has met Worden twice.

Oh, that was not clear.

When on vacation, we do a combo of cooking and eating out. When on a day trip, we will usually stop and eat lunch out, instead of packing a sack lunch.

Books. That would be the husband's slurge.

That is how we vacation, for the most part.

You don't consider frivolous spending in your everyday things to be a splurge?

I think that I am finally beginning to understand.

LOL, indeed!
