“My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Noodles.”

“What on Earth are you talking about?”

“It’s a memory thing – it helps me to remember the order of the planets as they are, going from the Sun outwards.

“Oh.”

“Yes. It is: Mercury, Venus, Earth (Third Rock From The Sun), Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.”

“No ‘Pluto’?”

“Not any more – Pluto ‘wasn’t’, ‘was’ and then, ‘wasn’t’ a planet.”

“Oh, poor Pluto.”

“I don’t suppose it minds – it’s only our planet that is feeling a bit sad about things.”

“Yes.”
