House for sale
My neighbours across the street are selling their house. I watch the stream of people filing in and out during open houses, and I am torn. I want my neighbours to stay, but I also understand their want to downsize and move north to retire. I want to make a good impression on potential new neighbours -- look, we're decent citizens and keep our yard nice and don't let our dog bark -- and yet part of me feels the urge to be honest and rush outside to warn people: Three bagpipers and two drummers live here! Buyer beware!
