Having a jetpack is fun–if you know what to do with one. If you had a jetpack, you could:

* Teach your brother how to build one too.
* Demonstrate its usefulness at Show and Share Time at school.
* Give your principal a ride home.
* Fly south to visit your nana.
* Visit the astronauts on the space station and help with anything that needed fixing.
* Pick up your pre-ordered copy of If You Had a Jetpack
