The Sun is a Star

…yellow dwarf or G2V to be exact. I lost my mind for just a minute and asked the following question to a friend of mine:

MN: What’s the name of that book again?
Buddy: The Warmth of Other Suns… by Isabel Wilkerson
MN: Is that son the noun or Sun the planet?
Buddy: PAUSE
MN: Hello……….?
Buddy: Wait, what did you just say?
MN: [Checks Wikipedia] Ohhhh, right… the Sun ‘is a star at the center of the Solar System’

Thanks, Wiki God! Don’t know what I would have done to break that awkward silence.

I will be checking out Ms. Wilkerson’s book… maybe you should give it a read as well!

Signing off… ETT!
