“If you could live anywhere, where would you live?” Allison asked.
Jordan thought for a moment. “I’d live on the Hubble Telescope.”
“You can’t live there. There’s no air or place to sleep.”
“It’s a hypothetical question, right?” Jordan said. “So any answer is allowed.”
“Fine, why would you want to live there?” Allison asked.
“Who wouldn’t want to live there? You could turn away from the Earth with all its ugly problems and gaze out forever onto the vast expanse of the universe. Instead of worrying about war and poverty and finding the right person to marry, I could look out forever on God’s grand creation and fill my soul with beauty.”
“Wouldn’t you be lonely?”
“You could visit sometimes, if you want. So, where would you live?”
Allison shrugged. “I don’t know now. I was going to say the tree house.”
(So…if you could live anywhere, where would you live?)
