|Does something your neighbor does ever irk you, so you must take matters into your own hands in order to avoid homicide?
Ok, its not quite that bad, I've had far worse neighbors, but my back yard faces their back yard. And through a chain link fence, I get to look at the back quarter of their yard. I'm sure the first 3/4 of their yard is quite lovely, but the last 1/4 behind a decorative half fence, is a pile of old tires and various other crap...that they can't see it. But, unfortunately, it is in full view of my living room windows. It's actually all I look at. Old tires and crap. Yay!
So recently, in plain view of the neighbors and the whole dentist building which overlooks my yard, I went out and planted Morning Glory seeds all along the fence. ON THEIR SIDE. They don't cut their grass in the back 1/4 of their yard, so I figured the seeds would be safe. It was a little difficult sticking my hands through the chain link fence and digging holes for the seeds on their side, but, by God, I did it.
I told Married Guy and wifie about it. They had given me the seeds for my birthday. I did get admonished though. Not for planting seeds in someone else's yard. But wifie is a master gardener, ya see. She said I was supposed to soak the Morning Glory seeds before I planted them, and then I was supposed to nick the corner off each seed, so they would germinate faster.
Huh? Hell, I could barely see the damn seeds. I can barely see anything smaller than a grapefruits these days. And I could really see myself hunched over the kitchen table nicking off the edges of 300 Morning Glory seeds (this would be a true sign that I didn't have a life).
Anyways, the point of this story, is that a mere 10 days after planting the illegal seeds along the fence, I just went out, and there are already tiny Morning Glory vines curling up the fence....hopefully to obscure my less than desirable view of old tires and crap.
Yay, me! Nick that wifie.
Fortunately got in to see the most delightful "A" today. Had a little mix-up on our meeting time, but other than that, everything was good.
We, of course, once again talked about sex. I am having a crisis of major proportions in this department at the moment. Can't really go into it here, since its pretty complicated, but I think you can tell by the way I write, that the subject is (ahem) on my mind alot.
And I don't think I will ever be able to find another person who I can talk so freely about this subject with as "A". Am hoping I can find some kind of solution in the coming months. But I did get a short term solution from "A" today....Wanna hear it?
