A guy named Bodoni really wants to fly in a plane. Every night he goes out and looks at the rocket. As the rocket flies into space he wished he could have that experience but he does not have enough money. One night an old man came out and said that he should not believe that he will ever get to follow his dream.
He tells his family that they can only afford one ticket. He told them that who ever pulls the smallest straw can go. when one got the small straw they did not want to go with out their family so one only one that was left to go was the dad. The dad did not want to go with out his family also. They all said that no one will go.
At the end of the story Bodoni got his kids and took them to the plane. They did not need to go to space in real life because they all used their imagination and played around. They all pretended that they were in space and they had more fun then one of them world have had with out their family.
