Jim: Ducking Through A Small Door

The green-headed duck pointed one wing at the overgrown pile of rotting frames. “You should open that door, Fred,” he quacked.

“That’s silly. Why would I want to do that?”

“Someone once wrote that the doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live,” he replied.

There’s no point in arguing with a duck so I opened the door. Suddenly, dozens of cockroaches, startled by the light, scampered away from their dank hiding place underneath.

The green-headed duck quacked happily and pounced. Within seconds, the bugs were all eaten.

I wondered what this said about my life.
