I just finished reading a book called "Riding Rockets: The Outrageous Tales of a Space Shuttle Astronaut."
It is the biography of NASA Astronaut Mike Mullane, and it's a pretty damn good book, not just because it's about a kid who was raised in New Mexico (though many, many bonus points for that!), but because Mullane gets down to the nitty gritty details about what it was like to ride NASA's Space Shuttle on three separate occasions.
Add to all of that, I personally think "Riding Rockets" is a fantastic title.
Which got me thinking...if I was going to write up the story of my life so far, what in the blazes would I call such a tome?
Tell you what...let's brainstorm together, shall we?
Here we go...let me clear my mind...remember no idea is too outrageous, all have merit.
