Right when I started the endeavor I realized I was out of eggs. It takes an entire DOZEN eggs to feed my kids breakfast for dinner. What? So I asked Saigie and Tanner to go to Ms. Tiffany's house for an egg. I know her because I work with her and we both happened to move to the same new neighborhood at the same time.
About fifteen minutes later I was wondering if my kids had been swallowed up by the night, or the mosquitos that still plague us. I was just leaving to search when Saigie came walking up with four eggs.
It turns out Ms. Tiffany didn't have any eggs. So the kids went wandering around the neighborhood at 8:00 pm
I have not met the neighbors. Because I haven't SEEN them. We have lived here two months. Rumor is there is a grandma, mom and dad, an eleven year old son, and a newborn living in the house next door to me. You know that if I had seen them I would have run over out of desperation for adult contact and
So my daughter wandered over to the neighbor's house and asked for an egg. She said that he seemed concerned, but the she explained who she was. Apparently this freak show was amplified because when he closed the door to fetch the egg Tanner who had been hitting up a different neighbor (one we know) for eggs joined Saigie on the stranger's porch and then proceeded to but her in a choke hold. When the neighbor we haven't met opened the door back up Tanner said to him, "Give me the egg and no one gets hurt." (This is what qualifies as humor in Tanner's mind.)
So .....the neighbors are going to think we are crazy. That is not ususual, but I do like for them to at least get to know us first.
