Eli 3.10 Impresses the Neighbors

It's blistering hot down here--high nineties and very oven-like. You need to know that.

We have two kinds of neighbors on our street. The first kind are very friendly, and you've heard about most of them. The second kind are generally not friendly and never acknowledge us. Fortunately, our neighborhood is made up of about 90% type one.

Today, we were walking back from the mailboxes (talking about how hot it was) when a type two neighbor pulled into her driveway. This woman lives in a house four doors down and has never spoken to us since she moved in six months ago.

She got out of the car to get her garbage can from the curb right when Eli reached her sidewalk. The lady looked up and said (quite nicely) "How are you today?"

Eli looked up at her and said "MY BISCUITS ARE BURNING!"

Remember, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
