Good neighbors



Our neighbor is a third year dental student. And even though we have lived next door to each other for 3 months now, we've never met. Because she's busy learning how to be a dentist. And we are too full of ourselves to go say hi.

Last week I made a pan of Ghirardelli Brownies (which are so yummy). I decided that letting that whole pan sit on my counter was a bad idea, and so I cut out a big chunk and left it on her door. Don't worry, I wrapped it in saran wrap first. Then I attached a little card to it, saying:

"To our Dental Student Neighbor. Sorry we haven't said hi. And sorry this is so ghetto. but I promise it tastes good! - Kurt and Helena"

Yesterday she retaliated. We opened our door to find THIS:

Only, it wasn't half eaten then. She bought us an ENTIRE pan of brownies topped with fudge and cream cheese icing. Her full size card said this:

"Thank you so much for the brownie. It was delicious! I hope you like this one. It is from the best bakery in the area."

OH, IT IS SO ON. Does she really think she can win this game?

"Kurt, what are we gonna do?"

His face looked grim. "We'll think of something."

I have a Pumpkin Roll in the oven, and I'm running out to buy more cream cheese for the filling. That's right. WHO'S THE BETTER NEIGHBOR NOW.

Wow the only gift our neighbor gives us is the smell of burnt onions every night at 9:30. I would love giant pans of yummy brownies instead.

That reminds me of the Office episode when Andy and Dwight try to out-do each other in being polite.

I wish my neighbors gave me delicious brownies...
