Those are my excuses for my absence.
I have been sick
BUT--in a quick decorating update, the neighbors have added a rectangular sort of plaque to the door--above the oblong, belly-level, fall-themed welcome sign--that has a thanksgiving-looking pumpkin on it and says, "Dear Great Pumpkin" in a kind of handwriting style font.
I noticed it on Monday.
Last nite it was face-down in the entryway, having fallen when they closed their door. I picked it up and propped it next to the door so they would find it.
This morning it was absent.
Tonite when I got home it was back on the door--although hanging quite askew.
First of all--"Great Pumpkin?!?!" That is a HALLOWEEN thing (not to mention a Charlie Brown thing!)...someone got their signals crossed.
I want to (and have tried) to take a picture of their door to share, but I am held back by two things:
1: I feel like it might be some kind of security/privacy breach to photograph
and post pictures of my neighbor's front door for the world to see
2: I'm irrationally paranoid that they will see me taking pictures of their
door through the eyehole (is there a more official name for that?) in their door
Bottom line: I'm a chicken.
Anyhoo...Teen Wars will be coming soon to a blog near you!
