There was a torrid love affair between a ceiling tile, Tina, and a door, Donny.
They were inexplicably drawn together. Even though, Donny was too tall for her, and every time he opened, he dug a deeper hole in her skin.
“You hurt me”, Tina cries. “It’s physical agony when you come to me, and emotional when you leave me. But I want you to stay, just because I love you so much.”
Donny apologizes. Then says “Bye for now my love. I must go.”
“Come back!” Tina begs. “I will, but gotta go, now” soothes Donny.
“I need answers!” Tina cries. “Do you love me or her?”
Donny is torn between 2 lovers.
The jealous door frame, Francie, tells Tina, “Huh- you think he’s yours? Well, he ALWAYS comes back to me.”
Tina was frantic, and lovesick. Her big brothers, Tommy, Tony, Timmy, and Tammy (Don’t you dare make fun of his name!!), decided to take matters in their own hands. They visited Donny, and had a heart-to-heart. By the time they had cut him down to size, he agreed to leave Tina alone, and never touch her again.
Tina was furious at the “T”s. But she knew in her heart, they only did the best thing for her. No one should ever put up with abuse, under the guise of love.
She pitied Francie, who learned one day to her sorrow, that Donny was not all that. But by the time she learned the truth, she had had every board in her broken, and was left with 3 little door jambs to support, all by herself.
Moral of the story; Make the doors keep their splinters to themselves!
