This note was slipped under my door the other night:
It’s entirely possible that this note was meant for my new unfriendly neighbor and not for me. I don’t know for sure if New Unfriendly Neighbor’s name is Victor, as we’ve never spoken. I have only seen him a couple of times from afar. I waved to him, a friendly wave that was meant to convey “Welcome to your new home, Neighbor, we’re happy to have you”. But New Unfriendly Neighbor didn’t wave back. New Unfriendly Neighbor actually pretended that he didn’t see me wave. So now I have to play it cool and act like I don’t care about meeting him, because nothing is more pathetic than being Overly Eager to Make Friends Neighbor.
But then I got the note, and I wasn’t sure what to do.
Because I don’t want to keep Victor from true love. But New Unfriendly Neighbor (presumably Victor) seems like a jerk. But then some ladies like jerks, and who am I to judge if she wants to hang out with a jerk. But then I thought, the lady who left the note seems kind of stupid, since she obviously doesn’t actually know where Victor lives and slipped the note under the wrong door.
Unless whoever wrote the note thinks I’m a man named Victor. Which is a whole different problem.
