That's right, my mullet headed neighbor has returned from a two months absence. This has been his longest hiatus from his happy home since moving here two years ago. Usually it is about a two week on and two week off type of thing but after two months I thought that maybe I had seen the last of the mullet man. I should have seen the signs coming of his return. For one thing, I haven't noticed a light on in the house in two weeks. For another thing, his Okie wife has only had one boyfriend since his absence. ( No offence intended towards any Natives or Residents of Oklahoma. As they say some of my best friends are Okies.)
Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy. I so missed the 2:00 a.m. screaming matches and I had almost forgotten the excitement of flashing cop cars pulling up outside. Now I can even start receiving phone calls from family and friends who have listened to the scanner and request a blow by blow commentary.
However, there have been some changes. The mullet man has cut his hair. Perhaps he has been on some monastic retreat and cut his hair as some sort of penance. Another change he has not brought back any of the mongrels that he took on his sojourn, perhaps they were eaten in hard times at the monastery.
Is it in good taste to give a re-housewarming gift? Perhaps I could send over a five pack of beer or a get out of jail free card.
If you haven't checked out my guest post at BvB. What are you waiting for?
