Final Thought…
Many of us played silly games as children. One of my favorites was something I later learned was a game others played with their siblings as well. “Who could hold their breath the longest in the Wilson Tunnel?” I told you it was silly.

Of course, no one ever made it to the other side, although my sister always claimed she did. This was just something to do on our way to visit our cousins in Kailua. Little did I know at the time that Wilson Tunnel was haunted. Do you know why? Join us on the next “What School You Went” audio podcast for all the chicken skin elements.
