than a red door?
It invites you to come in
only after you’ve stood and admired it
a very long time.
But it turns out
not everyone feels that way.
I’m married to one such person.
“How can you not love
a red door?”
“It would make me angry,”
he says as he makes strange “angry noises.”
No red door.
What colour door do you want?”
“Natural wood brown.”
So I guess it’s no red door for me.
But no brown one either.
We will compromise.
We will cooperate.
Hey, at least I got my red curtains
in our freshly redecorated front room.
Today’s OctPoWriMo prompt was “Color Me Good.” I couldn’t help but think of a conversation my hubby and I had when we went for our walk last night. We passed at least two amazing red doors, but alas, he was not impressed.
What colour do you think we should paint our front door? (We live in a red brick house, by the way.)
