Today a shirt who lives a few doors down from the Chez asked what was happening with the house beside mine. This is where the rarely seen ‘ghost-neighbours’ live.
In truth, Ol’Untucked has been wondering this very thing for nearly a year now. Aircon sometimes runs. Lights sometimes shine. Bins appear weekly for emptying. Despite this, there haven’t been sightings of actual shirts for all this time. All I knew was that when this house failed to sell about three years back, some young relations of the owner – who’d already bought elsewhere – moved in. I rarely saw them but we did smile and wave.
Going back to the few-doors-down-shirt’s question… there’s been a sign on the front door for about a week. I noticed it, realised it was too far away to read from the street, and immediately forgot it was there. She had actually been to the door, but has trouble reading and was hoping for assistance.
What it said was quite a surprise. Apparently the place got raided by the cops because they’d been growing something illegal!
The things you miss because you’re at work, ey?
