In the out door

French Quarter doorwayI’ve always hated that expression, “when one door closes, another one opens.”

What the hell is that supposed to mean? Is it an exit or entrance? Which room does it open on – bedroom, kitchen, bathroom? That would suck.

What if you have to walk backward through it, or are trying to be nice by holding the door for everyone else, does your new opportunity go to them instead?

It’s a stupid saying…

For all I know it’s a revolving door that spits me out right where I started, while still thinking I’m in a better place.

It’s just ridiculous, all this talk about doors.

Now, if they’re talking about making your own door, that’s something else entirely. Hand me that hammer and nails, this is going to take some time and hard work.

The Trifecta challenge this week is: Door [noun \ˈdȯr\] 3: a means of access or participation : opportunity
This week’s Studio30 Plus prompt is “Backward,” and/or “Perce-neige.”

  1. I’m not posting until tomorrow, but you & I are on the same wave about that revolving door. Loved your thoughts about holding the door for someone else & passed opportunities.


  2. This made me totally laugh out loud. I love the twist on giving your opportunity away if you let someone else walk through your newly opened door. It’s cool that you do funny snark just as well as the pretty stuff 😉
