Little Blog’s Big Sky July 25, 2007

Posted by biglittleblog in Astronomy and Maths, Holidays and travel.

The holidays are now far behind us, but Little Blog’s mind is still travelling. She gazes wistfully at the sky as a jet leaves a long, white streak across the blue expanse. Then one of those numerous random thoughts flies across her mind:

“Daddy, do you know why God made the sky so big?”

Dad: “No, Little Blog. Do you?”

Little Blog: “Yes. It’s so there is room for all the aeroplanes to fly and so that they can each fly in their own line and so that they don’t crash into each other.”

Mom: “And do they stay in their own line, Little Blog?”

Little Blog: “Yes, they can fly from the one end of the sky to the other end.”

Dad: “How long does it take them to fly so far, Little Blog?”

Little Blog: “A hundred days.”

Mom: “Where do they go that takes so long?”

Little Blog: “America.”

Dad: “Is that the furthest you can go in a plane?”

Little Blog: “No, you can also go to London.”

Mom: “How do you know it takes a hundred days?”

Little Blog: “I counted it on my fingers!”
