Neglected Structures & Overgrown Places #09 — Monster Behind Broken Glass

Monster Behind Broken Glass

This broken glass panel is at the bottom of a door. If anybody wants to know how to produce a work of art like this, read on.

  1. Don’t bother winching up your door and sorting out the hinges until the structure sags down so much that every time someone opens and closes the door it creaks loud enough to wake up the entire street.
  2. Let it deteriorate further, so the door starts sticking (a note of caution here: don’t pull at it too hard or it can suddenly fly open so you end up on your backside in the flowerbed).
  3. Leave the door swinging open, turn your back for a moment, and a southwesterly gale crashes it against a flower-pot repeatedly, weakening the glass.
  4. Door totally sticks when your son tries to open it, so he gives it a “little” push (kicking not required) with his size 14 shoes and hey presto …

As for how to trap a monster in the glass, that’s my secret.
