A New Neighbor

Well, it finally happened, after all these years without neighbors on three sides, I have a new neighbor right across the road from me. His name is Jason and he’s a fireman. It’s customary to bake something as a welcoming gift, and I thought about it. Unhappily that was all I did, just think about it, for several weeks. Finally, I drove to a fancy bakery in town and bought a variety of goodies. When I introduced myself and offered him my gift, I told him: “I got these at a bakery. By the time you got something baked from me, you wouldn’t be a new neighbor anymore!” He didn’t seem to mind.
