Wrong Door!

     We only had one hour for lunch.  Still my friend John insisted we visit a new art gallery he had heard of.  Racing down the street, he tried each door as he came to it.  Panicked I noticed no sign and tried reason.  

      Refusing to listen he discovered one door unlocked and announced “This is it!”  I chased him up the stairs begging reason.  There was no sign!  Out of breath, we burst into a cozy living room inhabited with a startled man dressed only in his boxer shorts.  My face heated up as I turned to escape.    Wrong door!


I saw this photo while visiting "Everyday Gyaan".  When I first wrote this piece I thought it was for a 100 word challenge that is normally hosted on this site.   Then I realized that this photo was for another writing prompt my friend Corinne participated in that has past.  She found the photo here. Whoops!!  Anyways...since it is already written I thought I would go ahead and share it with all of you.  It is a true story and really happened to me when I was working.  Hope you enjoy it and I hope I captured my embarrassment well in the telling.  Thank you Corinne for the inspiration.

    1. Sally, you can say that again. Turns out the guy was a delivery man for a deli near where I worked and I say him often on roller blades delivering food. I never could quite look that guy in the eye again. I kept seeing him in his boxer shorts in my mind. UGH LOL Thank you for stopping by to read and for your kind comments! ♥
