Dear Sun, how low can you go? Please
Sun: Missed me, did ya? OK, let me
turn this thing around.
I'll be back!
Earth: Silly old Sun, the humans
know it isn't YOU that's moving, it's ME!
Sun: Oh, when did they finally catch
Earth: Not too long ago
Sun: Well, it was fun while it lasted,
all 4.5 billion years. It seemed like Earth creatures barely
noticed anything until humans came along.
Earth: You probably miss sun-worship.
Those were your glory days.
Sun: Actually I was appalled at their
rituals. But I must confess I was in love with several Egyptian
priestesses of Ra as they called me, like Anck Su Namun.
Earth: Yes, I remember her. Wasn't
she Miss Heliopolis 2000 BC?
Sun: Yes, she really loved me, too.
But too late now.
Earth: She might still show up someday
