Our Solar System

Blockette has been very into this Magic Tree House Space book she checked out of the Library. Apparently, it has this mnemonic device in it to help you remember the order of the planets. She was telling me about it over dinner last night. My very eager mother just served us nine pickles. (Yeah so the book is a bit outdated as it still lists Pluto as a planet, but whatever.)

I was pretty impressed that she remembered that sentence all on her own and was curious if she could use the sentence to list all the planets in order.

She began listing them out: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uterus,

Wait, What?!!! Uterus?

I would like to state for the record that it is not a pleasant experience when you almost snort fried rice through your nose.
