There is this family that lives down the street from us. But not on our street.. they are outside of our "neighborhood" on the main street. I've been noticing them since our realtor drove us to look at our house and have been dying to be their friends ever since. In fact, they are so important to me, that when I saw their house, I thought to myself that this was an omen telling us we need to move in.
They have had a Patriots flag flying proudly from their house since February. They fly it all year long!! I love that. I need some support. New England fans are hard to come by around here. (They have also had a little Redsox flag by their mailbox... and a Carolina flag) We're a match made in heaven.
So for the past couple of months, I'll admit it, I've been somewhat stalking them. I drive slowly by their house. We take walks by their house while I'm secretly hoping they'll be outside.. so I can what?? Attack? I haven't thought out exactly what I'll say.
"Hi, I've been planning this get together for the past couple of months, do you want to be my friend?"
Maybe I'll just throw out a big hefty Go Pats and see where we go from there.
