So there's this couple in our neighborhood and I have been on a supersecret mission to make them our friends. I don't know anything about them except they have a young baby (we have a young baby!), they have a dog (we have a dog!), they walk their dog twice a day (we walk our dog twice a day!), and they look supercute (we're supercute!). I've been kind of stalking them (not really) (well maybe) hoping to run into them on one of our walks and strike up a conversation and become BFFF's (best family friends forever). As part of my master plan, when I'm walking Scrappy and I see them in their front yard, I make sure to walk up and down their street. I hadn't ever actually talked to them though (creepy, huh?). Well today, the guy was shoveling his driveway, so I took Scraps down their street of course, and thought I'd toss out a friendly greeting. You know, being neighborly and all.
"Good luck! It's brutal shoveling." Or something like that.
He stared at me like I had just asked him to buy me tampons or something.
Now maybe I wasn't loud enough. Or I looked like a BlizzardMonster all bundled up. Or he lost his tongue in a terrible accident and he can't talk anymore.
But my master plan is off. Which is fine. I didn't want to be friends with them anyways.
