Someone came over to our house last night! Surprise! Our cute neighbors needed some sugar for a dessert they were making. It was about 8pm and I was so excited. Someone came to our house. Grant it, it was only 3 minutes, but still.
I thought about it this morning, and I can't help but remember one of my favorite musicals as a kid, "The Unsinkable Molly Brown". Did you ever see that movie?
Molly and her husband are a couple of country folk that discover gold and strike it rich. They move to Denver and buy this massively large house. The only problem is that the neighbors are snobs and no one ever comes to visit them, so they are so lonely. They ended up crashing the neighbors party next door.
"Howdy!" "Hi, there!" "Evening to y'all."
Oh, you get the picture.
I can't help but think of the Browns when I look at our situation. We live in this huge house and we never get any visitors. It is news worthy when we do. We just live so far away. I feel like my relationship with Molly Brown has gone to such a deeper level now.
Maybe I will go with her to France and learn some French.
