A Shooting Star is not a Star

Scene: Me, out on the stoop next to work, looking at Jupiter through a telescope.

Enter Mary, the boss's mom: "What are you looking at, meteorites?"

It was all I could do to just say, "No."

PS: You might use a telescope to look at meteoroids. You either use the naked eye or motion-picture film to look at meteors. You use a shovel to look at meteorites.

PPS: Since no-one has apparently even touched it in the last 6-9 months, I am claiming the wind-up hopping dreidel from work as my own. Yes, you read that correctly. Wind-Up Hopping Dreidel.
