: : 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 "épater 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
