Clipart image of a shivering woman

Inspired by Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) of 17 January 2023, door.

In her nightdress, a poor girl called Pam,
Took the trash out, and got in a jam,
Wearing only a sliver,
Started quickly to shiver,
When, behind her, she heard the door slam.

Currently not far above freezing here.

  1. I tried to empty my indoor recycling bin this morning, but couldn’t even get the outdoor bin open – the lid was not only covered with snow, but was frozen shut too! Brrr…

    • My mother locked herself out of my apartment once. She had a key but swore it didn’t work. I had to knock off work early to get back to her, which probably took an hour, whereupon I took the key opff her and opened the door.
      You should restart your “guess the track” btw.
