Feeling the full moon

Last night was a full moon.

Now, I love all things space. For a long time I was seriously working toward becoming an astronaut. While my plans have changed, I'd still do almost anything for a chance to go to space, and I don't think I'll ever get over being enamored with the universe and all the possibilities it holds.

That said, I often feel wonky around the full moon. For a couple days prior and a couple days afterward, I am often moody and crabbypants, for little or no reason.

It's strange, the foul mood the full moon brings on. (I promise I'm not a were.) My mom and I have always blamed weird occurrences, an onslaught of crappy driving, etc. on the phases of the moon. And if you asked her, she'd swear children are effected by it more than adults; when she taught fifth grade, she could always tell when a full moon was near.

Do you ever feel strange around the full moon?

  1. I never notice. But I've always found I can be totally clueless to the things around me.
