the things we know for sure about the new neighbor.
1. he doesn’t know how to break down boxes properly, or at all.
the boy found this out after taking our trash to the dumpster and he found that the dumpster did not, in fact, have room for said trash because it was filled with boxes. like, constructed boxes ready for stuff. he was not a fan.
2. he’s from new york.
i have no idea how we know this.
3. he feels that it’s appropriate to answer the door with no shirt on.
i found that out today, when we both happened to open our doors at the same time to retrieve packages left at our respective front doors. he stood there, looking a trifle like what i imagine the guys from the jersey shore look like (not having fully watched the show) and said “how you doooooooooin’?”
okay, not really. we both just eyed each other for a second and he may have said something about presents as i retreated back into the safety amidst the company of the shirt-wearing dwellers of my home.
4. he’s really wants to be friends, we can tell.
see exhibit a above.
