CoryDoors – Convenient Not Convenient #ThursdayDoors

I was out and about at breakfast time, so I dropped in to eat at That Place That Used To Be Convenient. It hasn’t been a Convenient Food Mart for, like, ever, but this is Corydon. I think it’s Circle K, but maybe not. You know it: It’s across the street from Bennett & Bennett Insurance. Yeah, that place.

No lie, they have super-good sammiches there. The BLT is like to die for. But I got a thing on a biscuit. Delicious!

Plus, it made me think of my grandpa. When it was a Convenient, it sold gas. Grandpa would invariably say, “Eat here and get gas.”

And I saw this door and had to share it.

So you just know what I thought: “Eat here and get worms.” Not too appealing, but my sammich was good.

Thursday Doors is the baby of Norm Frampton, photographer extraordinaire. Visit his web site and you will get neither worms nor gas, but an entry (ha ha) to doors of the world.

A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: A character stops at a convenience store.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      I know. Such a jolly slogan, EXCEPT THAT IT’S TRUE. Not actually so jolly for the actual worms — or the actual fish. But that’s just me. I go, “Ha, ha, ha, ha! That’s so funny! –Oh. No, it really isn’t. Ugh.” And Mom would have said, “You think too much.”
