As you all know (if you've been reading), I've been sick since Sunday evening. I've only left my house twice since then and my pajamas have been my attire of choice. Last week, we began having problems with the water pressure in our shower so we knew we were going to have to get someone in here to take a look at it. Well... of course they came on Monday. The day that I've got a wicked fever and throat that feels like it's on fire. I'm laying on my couch in my pink fleece pj's with white rabbits on them and hear the door bell. The guy is here to take a look at it and figure out the problem so it can be fixed.
After a few minutes and many trips up and down my steps to the basement, he realizes he's going to need another opinion (code for I have no idea what I'm doing). Ok, great! Insert sarcasm. So he leaves and a few minutes later comes back to my door, opens it up and says, "Is it ok if I bring in Doug (not using his real name)? At this point, I'm like What?!?! Um..ok? Because Doug is one of my next door neighbors who has never been in my house let alone in my upstairs bathroom. They know each other and apparently he knows a lot about indoor plumbing, electricity, etc. He comes into the house, basically because at that point it would have been even more awkward not to let him come in because he was standing on the porch waiting and could hear the guy asking if it was for him to bring him in.
Here's where the awkwardness really begins. I get up off the couch so I don't look like a complete slouch. I look at my neighbor who's just come into my living room and he literally is standing there with bare feet, a white t-shirt and in his yellow underwear. Nope... not even kidding! Let's address all the points of his awkwardness and inappropriateness:
1. The bare feet- He had no socks or shoes on. He lives across the street. It was raining out. Not a drizzle but non stop raining. That means he walked bare foot on the brick street, thru the wet grass and then put his feet onto my carpet. Um, gross! I also caught a glimpse of his toes and it was not good.
2.The white t-shirt was not white. I could tell that it was probably white at one time but now it had this tint to it. It was also a v-neck and I could tell it was one of those shirts that you're suppose to wear under other shirts not for just everyday use. But the shirt isn't the hot button issue here...
3.The Yellow underwear- to top of his look he walked into my house wearing his yellow boxer shorts. Like he had just been caught mid-change or pre/post shower. From the looks of him though no shower had been involved. So what the heck was he thinking?!?! Wouldn't you want to put on shorts or pants before walking into someone else's house?! It literally would have taken like 5 seconds.
So there you have it, I'm also now trying to avoid any eye contact with that neighbor.
This weeks Theater Thursday is A Summer Place.
