Just one wall?

So there is a construction project at a shopping center in a city near where I live. They are tearing down an old mall and creating a shopping plaza. Sounds great, huh? Well, in the meantime, there are still two active stores, and I went to one the other day.

And what do you think I saw when I came out the side door? That’s right,  the wall above. A single wall, standing all by itself in a space that used to have about half a dozen stores. One wall, with not one, not two, not three, but four doors. And I began thinking to myself, why this wall? Why would they demolish all of the walls, stores, hallways, and closets between this wall and the store you still see in the background, but leave one exterior wall?

Well, as you can imagine, my mind began to come up with all kinds of possibilities. Possibilities like: dimensional doorways, secret below-ground meeting spaces, alien conspiracies, enchanted spells, and drunken construction workers. It was such a strange sight that I actually returned this morning to take the picture above for my blog.

What do you think? Does an image like this prompt story nuggets for anyone but me?

    Funny post, and weird about that wall, huh? I’m betting it’s the dimension door thing. 🙂
