I hate nosey and pushy know it all neighbors. Whenever we are working on the yard our neighbors to the right of us will sit behind their blinds and watch what we are doing. Then usually within the hour will come outside and tell us how they feel we are making a big mistake with our yard and offer unsolicited advice as to the RIGHT way to do it. How since we are from NY we dont know anything about gardens...they have been gardening for years....yada yada yada. And of course end the conversation with...."we have the best yard in the neighborhood so we know what we are talking about". Yesterday the lecture was about watering after 10 am and before 5 pm. The hubby doesnt care but it po's me to no end. So today I am in the back yard at around 11 am and watering the vegetable garden. I look over and see that the nosey mfs are looking through the blinds in their sunroom. I know they are just minutes away from calling the gardening police cause I am watering at the wrong time. So I go into my house, and since I have a chitload of easter candy take a few chocolate eggs and put it into my sweatpants pockets . I go back outside and am facing their sunroom. I have my hand and am scratching the outside of the back of my pants, but they cant tell if I have my hand inside or outside of my pants. I then take my hand and put it into the back pocket of my pants where I have the now melted chocolate eggs. I pull my hand out, look at the melted chocolate on my hands, smell it, and then start licking it. Within minutes the blinds are shut. I then go into the house and the hubby asks what was I doing. I say watering the veggies. He says you know that they are gonna say something. I offer to bet him dinner tonite that they dont come over. He takes the bet. It is now almost 6 pm, and the hubby is taking me out to dinner.
Has anyone mentioned that you are one devious lady!
