I’m all for being in the moment.
But sometimes, you just want to tunnel your butt someplace else. Not always even to a churro factory after hours, although … well, we all have aspirations. And I’ve asked several strangers, bloggers, friends, and a few strange blogger friends this question:
If you could build a tunnel from your house directly to anywhere in the world, where would it go? And why?
That’s a lot to get into six words, but it’s possible.
Ernest Hemingway inspired the idea. He said any story could be told in exactly six words. It’s mostly true. I got the question again from a great site you should check out: Q4KIDZ. Subscribe, and get all kinds of cool questions to toss around with your kids.
Let us know in comments where YOU’D want your tunnel to lead – and why!
