All bad kinds of things happen when you run into a door!
I ran across the floor and smacked into a door. It made my nose all bloody. And now I’m talking fuddy.
It blackened up my eye so bad I thought I’d die. It flattened out my face so it looked like second base.
It knocked a couple teeth loose. Now I squirt when I drink orange juice. Next time I take off runnin’, I’m hopin’ the door I’m runnin’ through is open.
