My Neighborly Promise

Dear Friends Who Will Soon Be Our Neighbors*

I solemnly swear to NOT do the following:

  • constantly ask for a cup of sugar or one egg.
  • pop in unannounced.
  • frantically drop my kids or dog off just because I have an emergency which is actually the new Brad Pitt movie.
  • scream at you from our front yard every time you walk past our house.  I’ll just wave.  If you want to stop and talk, please do.
  • beep at your house every time we drive by.

As your new neighbor, I solemnly promise to do the following:

  • always have a cup of sugar or one egg handy in case you’re out.
  • when you do pop in, I promise to start a pot of coffee or open a bottle of wine.
  • always have my door open for your children, dogs, or cats in case you have an emergency which is real or the new Colin Firth movie.
  • if I see you as we walk by your house, I will pretend not to notice.  Unless you want to talk and then I will.
  • not get annoyed if you beep as you drive by our house.

Above all, I promise to be a good neighbor.
