What ever happened to screen doors?
Justin Urlacher claims the beer at Rexall Place tastes like licking screen door.
I remember the taste of screen door distinctly. On a warm summer evening in the waning light, I'd press my tongue up against the mesh, imprinting it with a waffle pattern. I'd pull my face away to be entirely fascinated by the spit bubbles still left in the screen.
Ah, the taste of licking screen door.
I don't know why I'm feeling nostalgia for screen doors in the middle of winter, but I'm left wondering why all these new pre-fabricated homes lack screen doors. Even my parents replaced the screen door/heavy door combo on our nearly 20-year-old house with a fancy looking door that everyone has difficulty opening.
I mean, screen doors haven't outlived their use. They still let in a cool breeze in the evenings, and you can still hear the sounds of the neighbourhood activity outside. And more importantly, kids still need to lick screen doors so that when they finally taste the beer at Rexall Place, they know how to properly identify it.
