sorry readers been away awhile but your favorite author is back,what is
your embarrassing moment and would you tell anyone ?

I looked  up as like  most people did and would then be awed by the very presence of the Moon in our night sky each night it appeared as like most I then  would dream of flying to that body of rock we called the Moon.

  But unlike most people I would actually train myself in my backyard I would learn everything there was about the Moon,when I grew older I took flying lessons to become a pilot later in my life , my name was in fact Peter Strong but on this day I felt less then strong.   I'd to  would fly planes and jets as part of then  my training and even met two of the most famous of astronauts, both Buzz Adrin and Neil Armstrong .

  Then had came the day I was accepted by NASA the most excited day in my life let me too  tell you,t I'd  took part in my real first space flight just a flight around Earth and back again,can you believe , but that flight in fact change the way I viewed our planet .

 And then the most important part of my life came I was chosen too be a crewmember for Apollo 18 in 2023 and the Moon was out in all that splendor glory that was the Moon itself .I to sat in my chair and listened to the countdown like the world must had been doing .

 It wasn't how became an astronaut the flight  eventually got and then finally going too the Moon and landing there, my years of training and  going through everything I did did not prepare me what happened as I to  then got out of my seat went through my checklist , then I started climbing  out onto the ladder which was on the side of the spaceship .

  Now unlike then Neil Armstrong or others that stepped on the Moon I had not knelt down to my knees because I was pleased too be here I then knelt down because I peed in my spacesuit .

   A grown man still wetting his pants,unbelievable but it happen then the second dumbest thing I did was open then  my mouth after that   .

' Houston, we have a problem, I peed my pants .' And I'm sure that in fact  millions  got a laugh out of that  for the rest of my career I would hear it from in fact the rest of my fellow astronauts ,but it too was not funny to me.
 No one then responded to me so I the pretended nothing happened and kiss the surface of the Moon, I 'd then to  swore after peeing in my pants the Moon had  tasted like cheese to me .

That was a day I never forget neither would NASA .

the end .
