"Senses": A Spoken Word #WorthyVideo Post

  Hey there #worthyreaders! I hope you're still hanging in there.

It’s called, “Fish, Cheese, and Forty-Two.”   Ask five creatures the meaning of life and you’ll get five different answers.   “The answer is fish,” says the Christian. “Of course not! The answer is cheese,” says the mouse. “It’s forty-two,” says the mathematician. “There isn’t an answer,”
