Being invisible might suck.
I’m just being real here. My luck, I’d become invisible and walk in front of a cement truck. Or a kale truck even. Wait, are there kale trucks? I’d think that’d be counterproductive to use fossil fuels to deliver y’all’s favorite lib snack.
I took to the web and asked strangers, friends, and strange blogger friends, as I’m wont to occasionally do, to answer a prompt, in six words. Who does that? Ernest Hemingway, for one.
Y’all, for 23,902. (Roughly.) If you could be invisible for a week, what would you do? That’s what I asked. The answers? They were out of sight.
(My question came from the site Q4Kidz.org. They’ll send you a daily email or text with questions to ask your kids. Wonderful conversation fodder for the little ones. Camdyn (formerly known as Grace) has contributed questions to the cause there, too.
