the things we know for sure about the new neighbor.

5 January 2012

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.

    He sounds like a charmer 🙂 Should make for more fun stories to tell!

    OH MY GOODNESS. You beat me to a post about this guy, and though you have more conclusions I have one to add: He likes to play video games, loudly, for many hours at a time, with repeated explosions every few seconds. Or atleast that’s what it sounds like. I was going to say he missed out on a potential plate of cookies welcoming him to 429 because he told me to go away. you know…potentially. he’ll never know if I actually was going to do it.

    I have yet to meet the shirtless jersey shore wannabe myself.

      i think that you should make the cookies for him, take it to his door, see the “go away” mat, take it literally, and do the only logical thing: drop them off at the door across from his. 😉
