I want to add an addendum to the story, just for you.
1) The door to the basement of my childhood home did not have a proper doorknob latch mechanism; rather, it was held shut by a $.99 1/4-inch bolt latch with loose, wobbly screws.
2) I had nightmares about it and two other doors (another to the basement, one to the house's second entrance) in the same unsecured condition until last year, when the house was finally sold. I can only guess that is because it is no longer considered "home" in my subconscious.
