Tim Peake Forgets Book
In among all excitement and furore around his arrival at the ISS, Tim Peake – the first official UK astronaut – only went and bloody forgot the book he was reading!
“I knew I’d go and do something right daft like this – it’s just like last year when I forgot my son’s birthday, even though it’s exactly the same day as mine!”, Peake said. “Got a brain like a sieve, me, except when it comes to the intricate worlds of rocket science, astrophysics and aeronautical engineering, where I have a brain like a bottomless pit of wisdom.”
“I bet I’m in for a long journey now, right? I feel like a right silly bugger. I mean, if I was getting the train to Manchester and I’d forgotten my book, that would be ok, but not to the space station! Wait, what? It’s only 6 hours away? Wow. I feel like I should have known that.”
Peake arrived safely at the ISS, and has been frantically asking fellow astronauts if anyone has a copy of Olly Murs’s autobiography, which he described as ‘one small step for man, and one giant leap for the publishing industry’
