WHAT’S Behind the Door?! Tell me! Please!

So the other day I was using this Free Admission Pass (friend Carl gave me) to the Owens-Thomas House Museum very near where I live in Historic District Savannah.  But sometimes the most off-the-wall details get my COMPLETE, undivided attention–when they really should not.

(Bit of a tangent.)  Here are a few examples:

1.  Romney’s and Joel Osteen’s sorta plastically perfect hair (which I want since mine’s unthickening–I refuse to say “thi_ _ ing”)

2.  That big battleship in Cher’s If I Could Turn Back Time video

3.  Oprah’s real relationship with Gayle

4.  How many shades of grey are there, really?  Just fifty?

5.  After reading the ENTIRE Steve Jobs’ bio, all I keep coming back to, over and over again, is how he didn’t like deodorant–not that he revolutionized the computer and cell phone worlds.

6.  If, when I meet people, they see the tiny scar on my forehead, the result of a heavy Christmas tree falling over on me when I was a kid.  (Okay, to meet the standards of the Truth in Blogging Act, I should tell you that I was trying to adjust an ornament on the tree and pulled the whole thing on top of me.  And got yelled at, un-Christmasly, by my parents even in my pain.)

7.  Eggplant?  Egg?  Huh?

Anyway, back to the Owens-Thomas House.  After touring the home (it’s amazing in its history–had running water before the White House did!), I walked the grounds a bit.  Here are a few pics:

But then, just before leaving the property to grab a quick power nap, I saw this:

A little, teensy door!  But what for, door?

So, of course I had to try to open it, when the docent went to gather the next tour group together.  And guess what I found?!

Wait nevermind.  Here’s the purpose/thesis of today’s post:  If you could find ANYTHING behind that door, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

ANYTHING AT ALL. 

WHETHER IT FITS OR NOT.

WHETHER IT’S ABSTRACT OR CONCRETE.

Tell me, and my blog readers, what you want to find behind the door.  Or, put another way, WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR CHRISTMAS 2012?

But really.  A battleship?  And that outfit?  What a cool song, however.

    I think there’s a little Oompa Loompa behind that door! What do I want for Christmas? Don’t want to say it out loud because I silently pray it to myself 🙂

    Daniel says that he thinks there are little elves behind the door working very hard to build all of the toys for all of the children before Christmas…

    Love this blog! The Owens-Thomas house is a true marvel, for the innovations it had at a time when people didn’t have indoor lighting (they used right whale oil), indoor bathrooms, or heat or water. As far as the clip with Cher, well, that’s Cher being Cher. I wish my Mom would stop wearing outfits like that! Laying all seriousness aside, I think the the door holds peace, love, hope, tolerance and all good things for every human being on earth. Open the door and may God bless us everyone, whatever our situation in life.

    • It really is an amazing house, Mark. I’ve been several times, but always love seeing it and hearing new info about its history. And I love what you see behind the door. Wonderful eyesight!
