Garage-Door-Opener Face

It turns out that garage-door-opener springs do not last forever. Who knew?

When they go the way of all mechanical things, the garage-door-opener motor hums and its lights come on, but the door fails to lift. In this case, two outta three *is* bad.

On the other hand, failing that failure, I would never have looked carefully at the garage-door-opener apparatus and discovered not just another face . . .

Shark overhead!

. . . but a g’raj-door shark, doo doo doo doo doo doo.

  1. Hahaha. It’s Hallowe’en in Sherman’s Lagoon with some overflow into your garage, which seems “kinda fishy” (see Colonial Era Slang Terms at I guarantee that you will *love* the further link to The Chaos, which perhaps casts light (or confusion) on the pronunciation of your Alien Spam.

      Laurna – It’s funny how idioms change over time. “Kinda fishy” now means “likely illegitimate” rather than “drunk.” Thanks!

    I know from personal experience that garage door openers do not last forever. I was all set to back out of my garage a few years ago…the door went part way up and, kerboing, the spring broke. I couldn’t, for the life of me, get that door up, had to call a repair guy.

    There were faces made but they weren’t by the garage door.

    I bet the fixer guy will tell you, “The thing wouldn’t go past the thing.”

      Barbara – I think he was suitably technical, but since it was just a broken spring, the technical bar was not high.
