ben och jag pratar om rymden

I förra veckan när jag och Ben hade lämnat av George och var på väg mot hans skola hade vi ett utav våra roliga samtal igen. Han är så söt, Ben. Han går där bredvid en i sina skoluniformsshorts och knästrumpor och tänker så mycket. Man vet aldrig hur en konversation kommer att sluta, men de börjar alltid med att han tar mig i handen och säger "Fred?", och jag svarar "Yes, Ben.". Senast fortsatte det så här:

Ben: Imagine if you could send a monkey to space.
Jag: Haha, yes, that would be funny!
Ben: Do you think the monkey would like space?
Jag: I'm not sure. Once they sent a dog named Laika to space.
Ben: Why?
Jag: I don't know really. Maybe to test if it was possible before they sent humans out there.
Ben: Did the dog wear a space suit?
Jag: Maybe. What do you think?
Ben: I think so because otherwise the dog would be cold.
Jag: Mm.
Ben: Wonder what I would look like in a space suit.
Jag: I think you would look great, Ben. Especially with one of those big helmets on.
Ben: Haha. My head would look huge!

Vi går lite under tystnad. Man ser att han föreställer sig själv i en rymddräkt och rymdhjälm.

Jag: So, would you like to go to space, Ben?
Ben: Yeah, I think so.
Jag: How come?
Ben: I would like to see some aliens and other creatures. Aliens exist on the moon. You know that, don't you Fred?
Jag: ... Yes.
Ben: I think I would be very comfortable on the moon. Maybe I'll move there when I get older.
Jag: But since humans can't breathe in space you would have to wear your space helmet all the time. Don't you think that would be a bit annoying after a while?
Ben: Maybe. Okey, I will not move to the moon. I'll just go there on vacation.
Jag: Ahh, that sounds better. It's quite expensive to go to space though.
Ben: How much is it?
Jag: Uhm, probably abo...
Ben: ...Maybe around £1000 (cirka 10 000 kronor)?
Jag: Maybe a little bit more than that...
Ben: So maybe £2000?
Jag: Maybe.

Vi går lite till.

Ben: Fred?
Jag: Yes Ben.
Ben: Did you know that it's really cold on the moon?
Jag: So I've heard, yes.
Ben: That's because it's all the way up among the clouds and the clouds make it difficult for the sun to put any heat on the moon.
Jag: Did you know that a few years ago there was a man from Sweden who went into space?
Ben: What was his name?
Jag: Christer Fuglesang. I think he prepared for ten years or so before he could go.
Ben: Ten years?
Jag: Yes I think it was something like that.

Vi går lite till och så småningom kommer vi fram till Bens skola.

Jag: Bye Ben, have a nice day!
Ben: Fred?
Jag: Yes.
Ben: I will be 7 years old in April. So then maybe I can go to space when I'm 17.
Jag: Yeah, let's hope so!
Ben: I'll just have to miss a couple of days in school, but I think it would be worth it. See you at 4!

(Jag inser nu, efter lite googlande, att man har skickat flera apor upp i rymden. Jag borde inte få prata med barn.)
