There are keys, and then there are keys… then, there are doors, too.

Stanley Sees the Light
Ollie, look at this beautiful key.
Stanley, go ahead and open it.
Ollie, you open it. I just think it’s a beautiful key.
Stanley, you didn’t bring me here just to look at a key?
Did you ever notice how few doors actually have keys left inside the keyhole?
Stanley, stop wasting my time.
I’m not. I’m simply saying that people rarely notice how few doors ever have keys left in them.
Stanley, open up this door now or I’m leaving.
Suit yourself, Ollie.
I can’t believe what I’m hearing. I’m going through it.
Stanley flings open the door. He is immediately bathed in a wondrously seraphic light. He becomes starry eyed; his entire demeanor changes. He is imbued with an aura of happiness and bliss.
Stanley, are you okay?
I think I’ve seen the light, Ollie.
Well, Stanley, I guess the key to enlightenment also comes through doors.
I enjoyed this!
Confucius say,”She who enjoys is a joy.”
Wonderful! I like this one very much.
Thank you very much.
A bit of LIGHT reading
Enlightenment is where you find it.
That’s what this is –
LOL! Love the use of Stanley and Ollie’s names – nice throwback to Oliver and Hardy. Gave the scene a sense of whimsy, even though there’s definite tension throughout the conversation. Great entry. Thanks for participating!!
Thanks for the very nice and insightful comments.
