So who's nice NOW?

Have you ever been standing in your home looking out your window and spotted your neighbor standing in their house, looking out their window?

And flipped them off?

For no good reason except to see how they react?

I haven't, but I've thought about it. The problem is that most people wouldn't laugh, they'd be offended (see how in tune I am with fellow humans...I understand intuitively that they'd be offended without having actually tested this hypothesis).

Now, on any given day I probably flip off my husband at least a couple of times, for no good reason. His sense of humor is as juvenile as mine, and he always laughs. Like I've never flipped him off before and IT WAS TOTALLY UNEXPECTED!

That's one of the things I'm looking forward to about moving; I'll be living next door to a good friend who will in all likelihood flip me off if she sees me from inside her house. First. And I'll burst out laughing every. single. time.

Warms the cockles of your heart, doesn't it? Ever so Mayberry-ish.

Oh, and Appliance Update Part II (here's Part I): my dishwasher is fixed and is currently running it's first load in nearly three months. Since June 28, to be specific. Ah, the beautiful sound of water sloshing in a stainless steel tub.

    Once, when I thought I was trailing some buddies on the way to a golf course, I flipped them off in their rearview mirror for about a quarter mile. Turns out it wasn't them, after all. Nice.

  2. I flip Hubby the bird all the time. Yet I get pissed when he does it to me.

  3. Off topic here, but just wanted to be sure you got the email that your photo is ready to go for a Wednesday post at Looking Into.
    Send your readers over to see!

  4. Hmmmm...I totally missed the scoop about where you're moving to. So you've found a house? You'll be living next to a friend? That's awesome.

    I don't know that my husband and I have ever flipped each other off, but we are equally as juvenile and frequently call each other bad names (in jest).


Brilliant observations:
