love thy neighbor


tonight i caught a M&M commercial that said to go to www.becomeanmm.com
and so... i did. and i became an M&M. Earbuds and all. i'm wearing gloves & snow boots because WHAT? it's freakin cold outside right now!

so i'm going to try to go to sleep at a normal hour tonight... last night it was reading... the night before i think it was tv... the night before that i'm sure it was music... and who knows about the nights before that...
anyway... my point is that this is going to be short and sweet...

the other day, after it started sleeting and icing and all that... my neighbor (who is an elderly man) was outside in his tall boots and knit cap shoveling the sidewalks. and i'm talking he was going around the entire section of our building... cleaning it off for everyone... even up to their front doors. and then later i saw him out walking the sidewalks and throwing that salty ice-melt stuff down... walking through the entire length of our building... throwing the mixture down on the sidewalk...
one day, when i grow up, i hope to be like my neighbor... shoveling and de-icing sidewalks out of the goodness of my heart... even if it's freezing ass cold outside... not saying a word... just shoveling... and de-icing. i think i might ask him to dinner sometime. i wonder if he's ever been to Diamond Jack's...

anyway... i had to blog about my neighbor... cause his act of kindness made me stop and think...
