The Forbidden Door

My house originally had two exterior doors. One, the main door opened to the living room and the other into a utility room. After building the second addition we now had a new entrance and the door to the living room was renamed, “The Forbidden Door” where no one was to enter. It made sense because we still had kids living at home and I’m sure the carpet would have been trashed in months had we not rerouted the traffic to the new door.

The funny thing is that we still call it the Forbidden Door and I still get a twinge of guilt when letting the cats in or out through that door, but not guilty enough that I’ll actually walk through the house to make them use the other door.

Hah! We did that for quite a few years ourselves. When we took out the garage door and put in a walk through door, that became the one to enter and leave through. We never went through the old front door. And if somebody knocks at that one we know it's someone who doesn't know us very well. I peek out through the office window to see if we want to answer it or not.
