Sorry, no etymologies found.
And I don't know about you, but I live in that tomorrow they were writing about, and this is the first time I've seen a trylon or a perisphere in decades.
As we pass one home, sort of a refurbished farmhouse, I note that next to it is an exact replica of the massive perisphere from the 1939 World's Fair.
But I so want to investigate the perisphere that I open the car door and tumble out as it continues speeding on without me.
Mixed in with perisphere-themed objects such as crystal paperweights, drawings, and paper sculptures, are things that have nothing to do with the perisphere, such as ornate editions of Lord of the Rings.
I never become aware of the identities of the rest of my friends, and I never do make it back to the perisphere.
After I stop rolling and bouncing, I start walking back, but long before I find any perisphere, I discover the town's small museum.
