“Open mind, open road” (I)

“I heard someone say, ‘The road is the best teacher,'” said Virginia.

“What does that mean?” said Ditto.

It means,” said Virginia, “that traveling teaches more than any book or classroom.”

“Do you think that’s true?” said Ditto.

“I don’t know,” said Virginia, “I’ve never traveled.”

“Neither have I,” said Ditto, “my parents won’t let me travel on my own.”

“Neither will mine,” said Virginia.

“I suppose we could travel in our minds,” said Ditto.

“An imaginary trip to see what we could learn?” said Virginia.

“We could go anywhere,” said Ditto.

“Just imagine,” said Virginia.
