“NASA’s Kepler mission has confirmed the first near-Earth-size planet in the ‘habitable zone’ around a sun-like star.”
It hurts, it just hurts sometimes, you know? You give them everything and what do they do? Okay, I know I’ve run hot and cold, but it’s not like I did it by choice. These things just happen sometimes as you’re drifting along. And they haven’t exactly paid attention to me like they should. I feel really taken for granted. And then they do this. They find this other one they think could replace me. As if. What’s so wrong with me that they have to look somewhere else? What am I not giving them? And it’s not like this is the first time. You and I have both seen how they look at Mars. Well, what has Mars got? Dry and frigid–that’s it. They’d have to take most of what I’ve given them to make that work. Oh, I get it. Mars makes them feel half their age and two thirds lighter, but that won’t last. It never does. What we’ve had, all these years together, that should count for something.
I know, I know. I’m just venting. Thanks for listening Venus. Let’s do lunch sometime.
Love ya lil’ sis.
P.S. Don’t share any of this with Mercury.
