Shooting stars

"A treat is in store for star-gazers with the meteor shower anticipated tonight."

I dragged Husband out into the garden. 'We have to look for shooting stars.'
'Where?'
'In the sky, duh.'
'I meant ... oh, never mind.'

We didn't stay out long. I retain this sneaky suspicion that it's all a plot by alien life forms and that if I see a meteor storm I'll be blinded and eaten by triffids.

I saw one. But they come out so late--way after midnight. I saw one before midnight. I went out after midnight and there were clouds. There were probably hundreds of meteors, but you couldn't see them.

Another night when I'm not just over jet lag.
