No one ever really talks about it much. Half the time, no one ever really notices. The yellow path is the one people strive for, the one that they’re told to follow. Yellow is the straight and narrow. Yellow is right. Sometimes, though, people blow through and they wonder. “Where does the red brick road go?” they ask with smug confidence. They all assume we’re not as smart as they are. God only knows why. Where does the red brick road go? No one says a word. If you’re curious enough, you’ll follow it. If you’re lucky, you’ll go back home with a stress disorder and an unbelievable story to tell.
It’s not uncommon for them to send someone down the red brick path instead. Sometimes, they say, people deserve the red brick.
