Another Neighbor [Mar. 9th, 2008|06:03 pm]

This is another meet-a-neighbor story.

*doorbell rings*

(Shit, I'm not expecting anybody... must be a charity wanting money or signatures or something.)

I open the door...
Her: "Hi, I'm Inna. I'm Ukrainian and live across the street. I met your parents a few weeks ago and thought I'd stop by and say hi. I rent from Steve."

Me: "I don't know Steve. Which one? Oh, that house. Hi. Nice to meet you. I have parties here. You should come. I'll add you to the mailing list.."

.... etc, etc
So, yeah, much better than a door-to-door charity/political person.

My parents, visiting from Portland, stayed in my house while I was in Belize. Apparently they met this neighbor and forgot to tell me.

Between Christian and Inna, I think the next Wednesday night Cooking-at-Brad's party should be Mr. Roger's themed. Everybody must wear cheesy cardigans.

She's prolly an LJ user. Also, if someone doesn't know you well, that's a freaky time to go Mr. Rogers on them!

I don't think I actually have a cardigan. :(

I have thin sweaters, but no buttons.

Great idea

Also, shoes with laces is a must and all neighbors sing together Mr. Roger's song "I'm proud of you, I'm proud of you, I hope you are proud of you, too" UNtying knots on each other's shoes.

beware of Ukrainian girls - they are best in the martial art *to make boys married them* :) you've seen Russian girls already - now multiply it and put into power of few orders of magnitude ;)))
