Story series - The magical doors

When I was about 4 or 5, my family and I went to my paternal uncle's wedding. Since I could not understand what was going on, I was bored and itching to explore the place. My parents refused to let me leave during the ceremony and that drove me up the wall.

Finally, we got to move to another area. Didn't know this was a reception...but with all the commotion and whatnot, I was able to slip away. While exploring, I came across the magical doors.

I stepped in and marveled at the little round things. I pressed one of them and I was delighted to discover that, after a moment and some shaking of the floor, the doors would reveal to show everyone had disappeared along with the tables and chairs. I pressed another one and I got yet another different scene. I decided to try all the round things. Whenever I pressed one of those, they would change color and then go back to old color and after shaking, the doors would open to give me a different view.

After a while of getting random sights, the doors slid open to reveal my uncle standing there and my uncle shouted "Oh! I found him!" He rushed in and grabbed me and took me out of there. I screamed and hollered. I wanted more of the magical doors! I loved how things kept changing after pressing a button.

Have you guessed what the magical doors were?

The magical doors were...elevator doors. ;)

Needless to say, my parents refused to let go of me throughout the reception and the photos showed that. LOL

I started to piece it together halfway through. I have to keep the magical door reference in mind as I drag myself into my office building. :)

It's early and I seriously had no clue but how cute is that! Magical doors! LOL

Copyboy - it sure was a magical sight to behold. ;)

Nitebyrd - someone asked me "you actually remembered that at age 4?" My memory is funny when it comes to interpreting certain events and occurrances. LOL

Nope, I didn't get that.
I think you should post the pics of that event!
I wanna see what DCHY looks like ticked off.

I had no idea until you revealed it at the end! But that is so cute and funny!

DCHY said...

Shelle - thank you! :)

Lol, I like this...magical doors are elevators. My 14 year old was born partial deaf. he has always refused any type of hearing devices, I allow him those choices, though I wish he would try them, but it is his decision. My 14 yr old would also enjoy the magical doors. new follower here btw.

Mari - your 14 yr old son may be very aware of what his options are. He will thank you for letting him have those choices. Glad to have you follow me. :)
