I don't know if I told y'all that Neighbor left town 21 days or so ago, but now he's back. I saw him as I a was driving home from the grocery. He seemed to be in a better mood than he was the last time we encountered one another. He sheepishly approached my vehicle for a short, whimsical exchange, and then he backed away prematurely.
You know those people that you know you should stay away from, but a part of you doesn't want to? That's Neighbor.
Get me the hell out of town, before I do something foolish.
