Recently Overheard

I don’t know if I should be mad, proud, upset, or what. I was out setting the sprinklers tonight and I overheard my two neighbors talking across the fence line:

Neighbor 1: “Yeah, I met him the other day. He seems like an OK guy. Great looking wife, though.”
Neighbor 2: “I saw her out on their porch the other night. She’s like 25 or something.”
N1: “Yep. Too bad they don’t have a pool.”
N2: “Oh, man. I’d never get any work done!”
N1 & N2 chuckle in a very guy way.

Great. Now my wife is the young, cute thing on the block that the guys check out when they’re supposed to be doing yard work.

(Note to self: Plant shrubs along fenceline.)

  1. Wow. I think I would be mixed between bloodying a few noses and feeling lucky. Overall I think it would definitely bother me though… where do you live again? jk 🙂

  2. Yeah, I thought about talking to ’em and saying that I owned a rifle or some tough talk, but — hey — I’m married to a hottie! 🙂

  3. Where I come from, those could be fighting words. However, up in the civil metroplex (heh), violence may not be the first order of business. However, if they cross into your yard, I’d shoot them. After all, we’re in Texas. 🙂

  4. I’m sorry, but I soooo don’t believe this. They obviously haven’t seen me first thing in the morning (or in the afternoon, or the evening).

  5. Well, we’re keeping the blinds closed for a while – that’s all I’ve got to say. I’m still a little miffed about the whole thing.
