Jay Leno would be proud.
First, a disclaimer:Â I am NOT poking fun at any one person.
Secondly, an explanation:Â There have been issues in our neighborhood with mail being stolen out of mailboxes. So that is a serious concern.Â Additionally, a neighbor’s house was recently broken into while the family was on vacation.Â Thankfully, no one was injured and property loss was minimal, but this incident has served to increase the vigilance of our neighbors.
I simply thought the whole dialog was funny, as viewed by someone who didn’t take part in the discussion.
