Let me paint you a picture. It’s nine at night in the middle of a hot July heat wave. It’s been smoldering these last couple of weeks, and it seems like the only time you can go outside is at night. It’s on one of those nights that the girl you’ve been dating for the last three months calls you. She’s bored and wants to know what you’re up to. Eventually, she decides to come over to share a drink and talk and spend some time together. In fact, you’ve both been so busy it seems like you haven’t seen each other in weeks. So when she says she wants to come to yours. Of course, you’re excited. You’re about a beer and a slip of the tongue away from saying I love you to her, and all this time apart has been a little harder on you than you’d like to admit. You’re nervous, but you’re happy. So when you finally see her headlights flash across the window as she pulls into your driveway. You are more than a little excited. You head to your backyard and you both sit on the edge of the pool. She sticks her feet in, and you sit cross-legged looking up at the stars. You both laugh and you talk about how much you miss each other. It’s about halfway through the first beer that you look up to the stars and you think to yourself. “How did a girl like this ever notice me?” It is right then and there that you make the decision. Tonight you’re going to tell her you want to take things to the next level. You may not be quite so sure what that level is, but you just want to let her know how important she is to you. After this lengthy period of introspection, you notice her bottle is empty. You ask if she wants another, and she replies with an enthusiastic yes. It’s while you’re in the kitchen you notice she’s staring at her phone. Using the front-facing camera to adjust her makeup and tussle her hair. It’s through your screen door that you hear her whisper to herself. “It’s okay to be nervous, but if you don’t say I love you tonight, you’ll regret it forever.” After you hear that affirmation of everything you have been hoping for, a smile the size of Texas floats across your face. You bring out both beers, and you sit down. You hand her the beer, and she asks you what you’re smiling about. You look her in the eyes and take a deep breath. “There’s something, I want to tell you.” And that was the night your life changed forever.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “That is a sweet little story and all but what the heck does that have to do with a screen door?” Well, my reply is simple. Everything. It has everything to do with a screen door. When you want to modify your home. In even the simplest ways what you’re trying to do is facilitate moments. Moments in your life that can occur have the ability to affect you profoundly. And if you’re still not convinced. Check out these other two reasons why you should get your hands on a new screen door!
Banishing The Bugs
The main reason anyone gets a screen door is to keep the vermin out. You want to enjoy the day and the weather, but you’re sick of all of these pesky insects getting in your way! Well, that’s where the screen comes in. The door creates a firm seal against the eventuality of any outside invader. Keeping your home bug free! So that you can protect your home from becoming an infestation zone!
Taking In The Air
Not only are screen doors great for what they keep out, but they’re also amazing for what they let in! Which is that beautiful free-range 100 percent fresh outside air. If you’ve ever lived in a house that gets stuffy then you know exactly how important fresh air can be to a home. It’s what connects our indoor space to our outdoor space, and allows us to feel fully at home while still somewhat communing with nature.
Your space is invaluable. When you’re at home you want to be comfortable. You want to feel like it is your sanctuary. You want to feel like your home is an impregnable fortress, that none may enter without your say-so. So in that spirit why not extend that authority to insects? Insects invade your home and annoy you without a care in the world. Well, I say no more! Invest in a screen door, and watch your life change!
