overheard next door

Lawn-mower kids' grandma: What was your favourite part of the day, Kid with the Hook?

Kid with the Hook: When I smashed my face against the window.

Is it any wonder why the middle lawn-mower kid, the one who has carried a plastic hook around with him everywhere for the past three years, is our favourite?

The oldest one is just plain bossy, the youngest one is creepy. Clearly, the middle one is the best. Must be the power of the hook.

I'm glad you're not reporting on any further wiener sightings...

LOL, word verification = below

So far this year, all lawn-mower stalking has been fully clothed, WC. It's still creepy but not as bad as it once was.

I love overheard conversations like that. They definitely sound like an interesting bunch.

Imagine if we all lived near each other, and our neighbours...be one crazy block!

Amongst the gamers, the lawnmower kids and the raging alcoholics, we would look like a pretty normal bunch, Al. It would be a first, and a fun one.
