Seven Years!

What a day!
A neighbor who stopped talking to me and acknowledging my presence whenever I was outside, waved hello to me this morning! I was shocked! The background to this story is that I used to go for before sunrise walks around my neighborhood every morning and one morning this neighbor came out in his underwear to fetch his morning paper. I'm sure he was thinking no one would be out there at that time....Wrong! Here I come walking towards our homes, me noticing him, me noticing him in his whitey tideys, then him noticing me and walking very quickly inside his home without the usual wave hello and a smile. Ever since that day he has ignored me. That was seven years ago! Seven! Hence my shock when I saw him wave to me today. Never knew anyone could be embarrased for that length of time.
