Funny story of the month (maybe even the year...).

One night, I was outside lying down on my hammock, I looked up at the beautiful stars... they were very bright and very beautiful. It was fantastic. However, the next night (at around 10:30) I was extremely tired, but I wanted to go outside because it was cooler out there. So I went outside and laid down on my hammock and looked up to the sky, expecting to see stars (now keep in mind I am very tired...). I laid out there for a while expecting that once the porch light turned off I would be able to see them... but alas and alack this was not the case. So, still extremely tired, I went inside and sat down on the blue couch... and after a minute of sitting there with a confused look on my face I see PJ's on the other couch across from me.
"Hey sixteen hundred" I call him by his smart name since he got a 1600 on his SATS. "How come I could see the stars last night and I can't see them tonight?" Remember... I'm very tired...
"Clouds." Was PJ's reply.
"No... not the clouds... the stars..." PJ gives me the look of 'you're completely crazy'
"The clouds..." He replies letting me know I'm a complete idiot for not knowing.
Finally I get it. The clouds cover the stars at night. ooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

That was probably three weeks ago (maybe even more) and everybody still makes fun of me for it... lol.

peace out.
