: : Does anyone know the meaning of "Moon Roofing"? Is it something related to a second job...?

: I don't think it refers to a second job (moonlighting). I suspect it has something to do with the so-called moon roof on some cars, which is a movable part of the roof which can provide an opening to the air, the sun, and the stars, and also an opportunity to stand up and "├ępater le bourgeois," by which I mean flashing the good folks watching. But that's just a guess. It may have no connection with the moon roof on a car. A little context would be helpful.

: Don't worry about the difference between a moon roof and a sun roof. It's insignificant.
: SS

Insignificant? I don't see how you could moon from a sun roof. Pamela
