Fine I didn't like you that much anyways.

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.


  1. I'm sorry, Jess, but I laughed my rear off throughout this. Time for a new supersecret plant?

  2. HAHAHA OMG I am so glad that you posted this. We have new neighbors that moved in across the street that look around our age and so Marcus and I do the same thing - we watch them from our window and talk about how maybe they could be our friends (and we get stupidly giddy and excited about having friends living that close to us), but we've never made any attempt to try to talk to them. Maybe we'll continue putting that off now :)

  3. Bwahahahaha! This is hilarious!
