They were men - with great big cold ones

My daughter - she's fifteen - was excited. A lunar eclipse! Her teacher had made a big deal about it.

Dad! You didn't tell me it was nine o'clock! It's happening!

She threw on her coat, gloves, ran outside.

And was back in about that quick. It's cold outside.

Astronomers in the days before central heating were manly men.
