    Why is it when the sun blacks out on a Monday afternoon it's an "amazing natural phenomena" but when I do it, everybody wants to hold an "intervention?"

    I did not enjoy the Moon selfishly obscuring the Sun in a mindless attention grab. I grabbed my two heaviest pots and did a good amount of noisy clanging on my front lawn to scare the Moon away. Happily it worked and the Sun was once again revealed.

    You are all welcome!

    It was the inspiration for me to book a jump in 2024. A friend owns tandem jump business and he's giving me a freebie in exchange for my idea.
