This cute little girl is completely mesmerized by a space shuttle launch.
"Oh my goodness! It's a rocket ship!! It's a rocket ship!!!"
How did it happen that we all started yawning at the fact that a bunch of monkeys have evolved to the point that they somehow figured out how to shoot enormous projectiles so far up in the air that they actually get higher than the sky? Think about that. That's insane! And yet, most of us can barely mange to squeeze out a semi-interested grunt of acknowledgement when we see it happening on television.
Can you imagine how cool it would be to experience the actual mind-blowingness of a space shuttle being launched into outer space to the full extent that it actually deserves? That's the way this adorable little girl is experiencing it:
I think Elmo got it right when, at the very end, he said "I feel magical."
