3PM Wa­ter Cool­er

Co-work­er #1: I don’t like space, or as­tro­nauts.
Co-work­er #2: Why?
Co-work­er #1: Well, this one time I was at the Kennedy Space Cen­ter when I was a lit­tle kid and there was a stat­ue of an as­tro­naut at the end of the mu­se­um and when I got close to it, it moved and it re­al­ly scared me.
Co-work­er #2: Ooh, that’s freaky!
Co-work­er #1: Yeah. That’s why I don’t like space.
