Doing The Wave

I waved to my neighbor tonight.  Not that big a deal, except he’s not on my good side right now.  It’s a long story and I won’t bore you with the details.  Typing them out would likely give me twitches and clicks anyway.  Behind closed doors I’ve had a few choice words about him.  It’s tempting to carry the sentiment beyond the confines of my home, but I know it serves no purpose.  It certainly wouldn’t improve the situation and would likely make a temporary difference of opinion turn into long term friction.  So I am taking the high road and doing what I can to show my friendly side even though we are currently at odds.  He waved back.  Imagine that.  Our waves didn’t solve our current dilemma, but it does show me we are still capable of being on the same page with the big picture even though we are butting heads over the small stuff.

    It’s so tough when there’s a “neighborly” dispute, and with the housing market what it is, we’re all stuck with our neighbors for quite a while, I suspect. I applaud the wave :o)

    Groan, neighbors. Hate mine. We’re not on “waving” terms. You’re a better person than me. :)

    Oooh, I remember your neighbors. I definitely don’t want to trade situations.
