That's what I'll call the parody of "Tuesdays with Morrie" that I write based on my interactions with my next door neighbor.
He just asked for permission to take our trash out on trash day if we're not home.
Then he acknowledged that he was being annoying and invited me over for a swim. He said he would stay at one end, I could stay at the other, and we wouldn't have to talk.
It'll be a real tear-jerker.
