ASTRONAUT IZZY: I'm off to the moon, Mom. I'll be back later.
MOM: Wait a minute! Why are you going to the moon?
ASTRONAUT IZZY: I'm taking the puppy and we're going to practice moonwalking. And then we're going to fly to Mars.
MOM (confused): What?
ASTRONAUT IZZY (giggling): Just kidding. I'm going up there to get my time machine. I left it there a long time ago in case I needed to go get it and turn back time.
MOM: Hhhmm. And why do you suddenly need to turn back time?
ASTRONAUT IZZY: Because I forgot my homework and I don't want to turn it in late.
MOM (sighs): Fine. But be back in an hour.
ASTRONAUT IZZY: I can't be back in an hour! It takes a whole day to get to the moon!
MOM: That's what the time machine is for.
