It’s not just about getting places more quickly, it’s also about getting places more sneakily. The true joy of the shortcut, however, comes from revealing it at the last possible second. Whether you’re on a road trip with friends, competing in a gumball rally across the country or running from ghosts in a haunted castle, you’re sure to be a hero when you suddenly yell out, “Guys, we’re going this way. I know a shortcut!”
Look, people will tell you to, “Slow down. Life’s not a race, it’s a marathon.” Those people don’t know any shortcuts.
