Good Luck: Episode Six
Five of us were packed in the work truck listening to a wacky morning DJ tell a story about a man who dug a tunnel from his basement to the bar down the block.
His wife didn’t want him drinking. He used the tunnel in secret to get drunk while she slept. The DJ went har har har har har, and shook a noisemaker.
Pat said, “She was right to ban him from drinking, he had a problem if he had to dig a tunnel.”
“And she must have had a problem too if she didn’t even notice her husband was digging an escape tunnel.”
The story was a hoax. But so are most stories. Especially stories involving tunnels.
