The phamished new and gay scientist ashamed to death; he realized his jacket and lips don't match, and the color runing away from his face just made it worse.

Mom, you're overreacting again...I'll be fine! I've been practicing for weeks. What? Yes, I've got clean underwear on. Mom! The rockets WILL NOT throw me into Low Earth Orbit! I've proven that scientifically! What? Yes, I remembered to carry the 7. Stop it, Mom! What? My helmut? That's my boarding helmut, Mom. I know, I know, the flower looks gay, but I like it. Anything above 20mph and it's just a bucket anyway. Mom! I'm kidding! Stop crying! Mom, I gotta go! My friends are starting to razz me! I'll call you when I land, ok? And Mom? Tell Dad he can perform his own test flights from now on, ok? I've got a date with Frieda tonight and I need my boys, yaknowwhatImean?

It was only when he'd entered his hot beverage requirement into the prototype PBD (Personal Beverage Dispenser) that he realised he hadn't filled the header tank.
Ha! A chance to try the latest FRS (Fluid Recycling System) upgrade.
Gee those LynDoor guys think of everything he mused.

Yes Mom, I WILL call you as soon as I'm Finished...

YES Mom, I'll remember to bring home milk and eggs JUST like you asked...

Ok Mom, I gotta go NOW. Be home soon...

Now, where was I? Was I disconnecting the red or the blue tube?

I think it was the red..... Oh Nooooooooo!... (boommmmm...)

Oh well, maybe they'll let me re-take this class in summer school...
