But it’s pretty damn close…
Yes, we have EIGHT wonders in Kansas!
And one of them is a SALT MINE!
Please don’t let your brain EVEN BEGIN to consider what the other SEVEN WONDERS might BE!
It’s just TOO TERRIFYING!
We took the elevator down into the mine and we took the tour.
But only after we had applied the appropriate safety gear and listened to the salt mine safety lecture that includes the stern admonishment…
PLEASE DO NOT LICK THE WALLS!
Because if EVERYONE licks the walls – there won’t BE a salt mine much LONGER!
I did not lick the walls.
My four sons
And my husband
All licked the walls.
It must be a male recessive gene….
You know what else they have in those salt mines?
Other than lickable walls that you are not supposed to LICK?
Because the temperature never changes.
And there’s virtually no humidity.
Plus, it’s very hard to break into a salt mine and steal stuff.
And it’s in Kansas.
So who would bother anyway?
The only real danger to the stored items are people who might occasionally LICK THEM!
I licked a cardboard box that contained a few original episodes of Friends.
And it’s back to the salt mines for me,
(hee ha ho ho har har hee ho ho hee har har hee hee haw haw hwah ha ha hee hee HEE!)
