“The Roaming Pack of Wild Ghosts”
The year… is 1999 A.D.
Nan Miller, often known as “The Luckiest Boy in the Galaxy”, or “Lucky Nan-Nan”, or “Nanner the Boy Who Often Receives Good Fortune in the Form of Fortuitous Luck”, looks over the rocky outcropping through his lucky space helmet and smiles relievedly as he whispers into a tin-can attached to a string— we were right.
In the other end of the tin-can, Nan can hear the boys back in the tree-house hootin’ and hollerin’ with glee… the mission was a success for all of childkind.
The planet of Neptune was NOT covered with a sea of swirling vaporous gasses and liquids, as most adult scientists believed, but was actually covered by dense roaming packs of wild ghosts… exactly what the leading child scientists of the day had long theorized but could never confirm until now.
Nan stares in awe at the majestic beauty of the wild ghost as they gracefully float across the valley floor… finally, proof that not only are ghosts real, but also an explanation for why the Earth isn’t over-populated with the billions of dead souls— ghosts simply end up here on Neptune, is all, except for the few that remain in your closet and under your bed. It seems so obvious now…!
Having luckily won the chance to go on this trip to Neptune by finding the winning game token in the bottom of a box of breakfast cereal, Nan wasn’t sure what he would discover on this dangerous voyage… but he knew that the answers to these questions were bigger than him, bigger than all of kid-kind even, and if he could help answer the mysteries of the solar system and life… why, he really was the luckiest boy of them all.
Nan’s shuttle exploded upon re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere, killing him instantly, as the baseball card that was in the ship’s wheels to make it sound like a cool engine had become too bent and wobbly.
Since most of Earth’s population will perish in the subsequent nuclear holocaust of 2003, Nan’s death is still considered quite lucky.
