ALWAYS CARRY DUCT TAPE
The fact that someone had decided I’d be safer on Mars, where you could still only SORT OF breathe the air and SORT OF not get sunburned to death, was a sign that the war with the aliens was not going fantastically well. I’d been worried that I was about to be told that my mother’s spacefighter had been shot down, so when I found out that I was being evacuated to Mars, I was pretty calm.
And, despite everything that happened afterwards, I’d do it all again. Because until you have been shot at, pursued by terrifying aliens, taught maths by a laser-shooting robot goldfish and tried to save the galaxy, I don’t think you can say that you’ve really lived. Sophia McDougall lives in London and is the bestselling adult author of the Romanitas trilogy. She was a panellist at the 2012 How The Light Gets In arts and philosophy festival at Hay.
