I walked my dogs this morning and came across a realtor putting up a For Sale sign two blocks up from my house. I only know these neighbors to wave and say hello. I don’t even know their first names.
I know they have great landscaping and super Christmas decorations every year. I always admire them when I pass by their house.
Once I saw the realtor snapping the sign in place, I got sentimental.
I’m going to miss these people I don’t even know. The owner of the house came out to chat. He laughed with the realtor when I told them I don’t like goodbyes or For Sale signs.
They thought I was joking! I wasn’t.
So if you plan to move into my neighborhood in the near future, please knock on my door. We will become friends.
I can’t bear losing another neighbor I don’t know.
