Monday Morning Question

Monday Morning Question:

If you could go into space for awhile (not too long so that you wouldn't be missing your family, but just a short while), would you do it?

My answer:  Absolutely positively not.  I have never wanted to explore such a frontier.  It gives me the creeps just thinking about it.  I just don't like the unknon I guess, when it comes to the universe especially.  On the other hand John just LOVES it.  He said he would go in a heartbeat.  I was surprised at this answer.  I know he loves everything space but I didn't know he actually wanted to travel in it.  I guess we are going to have to go on separate vacations again - he wanted the safari and I wanted the luxury cruise!  

So there is the space question.  My mother asked me it the other day.  I don't know why it is circling the family, lol.  So what would you like to do, go into space or stay home?

  1. I have no desire whatsoever to leave Earth.  My life is here and I wouldn`t leave for a minute.  I don`t for a minute believe there is time in the future for human life to colonise, say Mars. It`s all just a fanciful idea and of no interest to me whatsoever. So it seems I agree with you Krissy! lol :-)    Sandra xxx

    ps. I hope you had a great birthday

  2. Yes I would....that's certainly one way to see the world....the whole entire complete world...wow, not to mention I might be the first average American grandmother who had ever did this....Not rich enouch to buy the trip...not a professional that they truly needs to be on the trip....and yet someone who would be so in awe at every single thing she might be uplifting and fun to have along....of course just a short trip for as my son has observed in me...staying at his place longer than 10 days w/o hubby gets me missing home.  I guess I begin to get emotional or something. Ha! Ha!

    No, I can't see me whizzing off into space at all!!  I don't even like to think about leaving the country, let alone leaving the planet!!  And then you've got all that sicky feeling because there's no gravity, and what would happen if I bumped into an alien or something?!!  No, Earth is the place for me :o)

  7. Oh my....stay home.....I would absolutely hyperventilate and pass out if I went into space.  I would be frightenend out of my mind.  And I would feel clostrophobic.  Can you imagine someone that does not like to fly going up in a spaceship.  
    Now Hubby, would go in a heartbeat and he is wondering if his opportunity will ever come.

  9. I'd consider it if my safety could be guaranteed to a reasonable degree. I'd love to experience weighlessness.

    I would go for a short while, only to get some peace and quiet and get away from the mess that putting in the new bathroom is causing.........Jules xxxx

    There is part of me that would LOVE to see what's out there... but lately I'm so nervous to even leave my house I think I'd pass ... fear of the unknown!
    Luv,

    Yes, I am going again...I've been before, and I am waiting for the mothership to pick me up!  I'm just afraid that I won't be coming back...

    Fear of the unknown might keep me back.  YET, I'd LOVE to see our Earth from space, and to take some pictures. :-)  I'm left torn, yes, no, yes, no ... MAYBE!  I know Sonny would go in a heartbeat.  Maybe I'd go with him!

  14. I'd go just for the shear rush! FLying was the most exciting thing I ever did. ALthough, when I let myself think about the plane crashing I could feel myself getting a little panic attack, but then I thought, hey I have a far bigger chance of wrecking on the interstate going to work everyday then flying in a plane. Then I thought.. and... if I am crashing, it is so far down that I know I am not going to survive it so no sense in sweating about it. If it happens there wasn't anything I could do to avoid it. SO I enjoyed it!

    Don't think I would do well in space.  I think I would have to take calmatives just to get through the claustrophobic feelings.  :-)

    I know it's Tuesday - I seem to be a day lated and a dollor short everywhere.  I think I'd go!  What an adventure!  Mostly, I'm a homebody, but a chance to see other worlds . . .I think so.  Blessings, Penny

  17. Don't like high places.  I've been 42,000 feet high in an airliner.  Wow, eight miles into space.  I have flown my own plane 8000 feet into space... but came right down, didn't like that a bit.  I've driven a car higher than that, in Hawaii at mount haleakila...spelling doesn't count. about 10,000 feet high, but still kept both feet (wheels) on the ground.
      Excuse me.  Enjoy your space trip and call me when you get back.)

  18. Sissy, I will keep my feet on the ground with you and look at other's photos when they return.  There is something about space that just scares me.  It awes me, but scares me nonetheless.  xox

  19. I would rather stay home, thank you very much... I was never even in a plane as Im just too nervous so I couldn't get to space ..... I used to like taking a train ride but now the trains even go too fast for me... I like my home though so its ok with me.
