Love Thy Neighbor.

We have great neighbors, I can't complain at all. Some are a little quirky, like "Cat House" across the street, and "Kentucky Bitch" who after over a year, finally came out of her shell and came over to talk rather than give me the stink eye from the mailbox. The "Bama Pharmacist" and his wife are super nice, "OCD Jeff Lewis" we never see unless he's being OCD in the yard or with the cleanliness of his car, but our favorite by far have to be the ones we refer to as "The Mayor" and his wife. They have lived here for longer than I've been alive, they have kids our age and grand kids that match the ages of our girls. They love our kids and our kids love them.

The other day while taking the Munchkin out with me to get the mail, they were out working in the yard, the Munchkin went over to talk and play while I talked to the wife, Ms. T. She said she had missed seeing us, that between us having all been on vacation, she felt like it had been forever since she had seen the girls. In mid conversation, she looked at me and said " Do you know who you remind me of?" I immediately joked and said "Please don't say Kate Gosselin." She started laughing and said, "that's exactly who you remind me of.. not so much because of all the kids, but because you resemble her, you're both just so cute."

Well, that's different. I don't really know how I feel about that. I also don't really see the resemblance. She has a reverse mullet, I definitely do not. She has Blonde hair, I have brown. She's had lipo in order to be skinny, me, not so much.

The more I thought about it, the more I think she just made up the cute part, all the while trying to figure out how to politely tell me that it's really all of the screaming and yelling that comes from our house. Because that? I'll buy.
