Seldom Heard Words

Leave a comment

There are sentences you rarely hear in my neighborhood. Because of our homes and our lifestyle, we have no use for statements like:

πŸ˜‰ Oh, no, the sump pump failed and the dang basement is flooded.

πŸ˜‰ Be sure to hold on to the bannister while you’re carrying the laundry down the stairs.

πŸ˜‰ The traffic out here is murder today.

πŸ˜‰ I can’t find a parking place.

πŸ˜‰ Duck! Don’t bump your head on the ceiling.

πŸ˜‰ I’m completely out of cabinet space.

πŸ˜‰ I can’t go to the cookout. I have to mow the dang lawn.

πŸ˜‰ I can’t use my telescope at night because of the dang light pollution.

πŸ˜‰ I almost fell off the ladder washing the dang windows.

πŸ˜‰ The neighbor’s dang music blasted right through these paper thin walls and kept me up all night.

πŸ˜‰ The dang association dues went up. A raise of $2.50 per month once in 4 years is unacceptable.

πŸ˜‰ Looks like it’s about time to replace the roof/windows/exterior paint/trim.

πŸ˜‰ It’s so impersonal here that I don’t even know who my neighbors are.

πŸ˜‰ There’s nothing to do here.
