When it’s unfortunate enough to be Pluto.

Of all the things I learned about science growing up, there are very few things I remember besides the simple fact that there are 9 planets in our solar system. I’m not sure I even could name them — but the number 9 has really stuck.

Now, I learn that there really are only 8 planets in our solar system. If Pluto is not really a planet, what’s next? Is Pepsi not really a soft drink? Is basketball not really a sport? Is Pride and Prejudice not really a book?

Needless to say, this news has changed something in my little world. I’m not sure what, but something has changed.

Maybe knowing whether or not I’m really buying a house in 27 days will help me sort out these planetary problems.

Still waiting . . .
