My neighbors are shovelling their driveway. At midnight. Not only that, they are talking quite loudly and animatedly in Lebanese as they scrap and bang at the ice.
This is all right below my bedroom window.
It's a good thing they are really sweet people....
They're probably saying, "Hey, can you see the sexy woman in the window?"
"Yeah, do you think she's fallen for our shovel cover story?"
"Ooh, I think I saw a glimpse of nipple!"
"What?! Let me see! Gimme the telescope!!"
Uh, considering that it was one of the gramma types who lives there and her son, I'm thinking no.
But the image made me giggle!

Re: showing my age
Hee! I hadn't ever thought of this. Color me VASTLY amused.
I'm ethnically Lebanese, and wish I could speak more of the dialect. I really just know food words.

And the food is so wonderful! They bring us goodies every now and then - SO yummy!
Be glad you don't live next door to me, we dont' shovel, we use a snowblower. Thats much loiuder.
But I bet you don't generally do it at midnight.
(Having lived in Alaska for 20 years before we moved here, I am pretty much innured to the sound of a snowbower anyway. [g])
It kinda sucks when your neighbors are sweet...because then...how do you complain?? I like our lesbian neighbors a lot...BUT...their little dog POOPS on the grass next to our driveway...I HATE that!! But how do you tell them??? I hope you got some sleep *smile*.
It's tough. I generally try to make it sound like I'm apologizing for needing to complain.
Have you actually eaten a whole one of them, or maybe just had a quick nibble up to the elbow?
Hey, I'm not the one who said, they are really sweet people.
