Last Friday I left for a jog and forgot my house keys. It wasn’t until I had shut the door behind me that I checked and realized I hadn’t grabbed the keys and was now locked out. My neighbor tried to help me to no avail. An hour later I finally called the locksmith, who came and opened the door in two minutes, which cost me $85. Ouch!
Today, I came back from work to find my back door completely open. Not ajar, not unlocked, but wide open. Fortunately, I have a screen in front of the door, so it wasn’t completely noticeable from afar. The strange thing is I remember distinctively pulling it closed this morning, and double checking that it had actually closed. In any case, I went in yelling “hello, anyone here?”, took off my heels and grabed a butcher’s knife (the back door leads into the kitchen) and started going from room to room, opening closet doors and looking behind curtains. No one was there, nothing was missing. My door had just been open, mostly all day, but nothing happened, thank goodness.
Remember that recurrent dream I have about a man chasing me, me going into a house/room, and closing the door, just to find the door is flimsy, and doesn’t quite fit in the door frame, the frame is too big for the door, and the man is coming closer, and I know the door won’t hold, and I’m scared, and I don’t know what to do, because the only thing keeping the man from me, is this useless door? Yeah, I remembered that dream today.
I also remembered that a few times before, I have come home to park my car in the garage, and the electric door next to mine is wide open. The car that parks there is in, the lady who drives it is not, but the door is open. My remote only opens/closes my door, so I can’t close the opened door.
Now, is it just me, or is this door thing starting to feel like a theme? I know I have been distracted lately and when I multitask, which seems to be all the time these days, I sometimes forget things or just don’t pay much attention to what I’m doing. But what is it with doors? Does this have any particular meaning? What does it mean? Any thoughts?
