My friend Neighbor J has these crazy ass neighbors.
Wait, that sounds like I’m talking about myself. Because if I call her Neighbor J, then that would mean I was her neighbor, right? But nope, sadly in this case, I am not talking about myself. Because Neighbor J is called Neighbor J because we used to be neighbors, and then we both moved, and so now it’s more like she is a Neighbor Emeritus. A neighbor in the existential sense, like Mr. Rogers and his tv neighbors. She now has new actual geographic neighbors, and they are a bit highstrung. One example of this is that they have screaming fights with each other (the neighbors have it amongst themselves, not with Neighbor J. God can I convolute a story or what?). And one of the things they call each other when they fight is “YA FRICKIN’ NUTJOB!”
I love this phrase. Ya frickin’ nutjob is something that I wish I could use more often. Her neighbors use it with complete abandon and although I do not envy the fact that they are having throw downs like that, I do enjoy saying that phrase.
So…anyway. You all talked me into something again. And this guarantees I will be saying this, about myself, at least once a day for the next 30 days:
“YA FRICKIN’ NUTJOB.”
