I sometimes stroll down a street where two pink doors shine out, resplendent. I find their coordination intriguing – two separate homes, two front doors, the exact shade of strawberry milkshake pink.
Do a pair of siblings live in these two homes and share a passion for pink?
Did one person paint their door and offer up their leftovers? Was their neighbour’s door so shabby, it brought down the cheeriness of their pink, so they suggested a touch of gloss?
Is this the evidence of unrequited love? Or of a marriage where they need to, and can afford to, keep their distance on occasion?
Did a guerrilla house decorator daub both doors on the same moonlit night?
Is this secretly one home with two doors? If you were to venture in, might you find an adjoining inner door?
What answer to this synchronicity of pink can you dream up and turn into a tale?
