My Diary: The Solar System Inside My Head

Gerald's Rather Strange Diary

June and I got up early,‭ ‬jumping out of the water and landing on the springboard‭ ‬-‭ ‬which immediately took the form of a ginger bread man and popped out one of its eyes‭ (‬this reputedly formed the space ship from the Forbidden Planet although personally I felt it made the first note from the opening movement of Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony‭)‬.‭ ‬We met another Odin inside a telescope‭ (‬where anyone who wears skirts has to dig holes‭) ‬and we walked to the farthest spot on the horizon to have dinner.‭ ‬June called it a protostar but I thought it was just a large planet.‭ ‬We tipped the man playing the bagpipes on the return journey‭ ‬-‭ ‬this was close to the edge of our solar system immediately after it had been formed:‭ ‬apparently a friend of ours had known the interstellar dust cloud.
