Overheard

Yesterday, as I came home from work, I opened the gate into our apartment complex and heard Inspector Climate talking to someone.

This is pretty weird itself because we don't know any of our neighbours, which is pretty sad really. We were only just starting to get "friendly" (ooh la la) with our of neighbours when they moved out of the building. I of course blame Inspector Climate for this because when we moved in I suggested we bake cookies go around and say hello to everyone and offer them some cookies, but he was not into the idea then. Now, he thinks it's brilliant. ANYWAY...

As it turned out our new neighbour friends were back cleaning up their apartment and moving out the last of their things and she asked Inspector Climate...

"So, your partner...is she a chef?"

and Inspector Climate responded, "No, but she cooks as good as one."

"Oh, I thought she was because I've seen her wear white." Um what?

  2. The only people who wear white are chefs or doctors or scientists, or just people. The cookie idea is a great one. That's how I met my neighbors when I lived in a dorm.

  3. Some people are just a little... special, aren't they?

    I think your cookies idea is a fantastic one and you could still do it! Just remember to wear white when you're giving out the cookies so everyone knows you're a chef (or at least, cook as well as one).

  4. All hail Chef Deidre! Heheheh.

    I, too, like the cookies idea. Back when we lived in Kew 4ish years ago, we made deeeeliiiish crepes for the neighbours and, well, 'twas a hit.

  6. I love the cookie idea. I always bake things for my neighbors. It's important to make friends with them so they can watch over your apartment/ house.

  8. I made cookies for my neighbours when I moved in to the police housing unit with Max. They thought it was me being friendly, but really I was just buttering them up so they didn't bitch too much when my dog barked all day long....

  9. Ahaha! Good times . . .

    At least it was a chef. A lady my mom once worked with commented that she looked like a missionary nurse in Africa. I saw the outfit of which she spoke and I've no idea . . . but my mom never wore it to work again. :)

  10. What?! hahaha!! I thought she was going to say she's smelled wonderful smells from your flat or she's seen you bring lots of groceries home or something. Carry on!

  14. Really? Wearing white means you are a chef? I never knew that. I'm far too shy to be sharing cookies/cakes with neighbours plus I'm a horrible cook. Have a lovely weekend!
