"Neighbor Stare"

 

Retired tap dancer takes his blind old poodle out of the house for a pee in the fresh snow.
At the same time, next-door neighbor, registered sex offender, who has recently moved in, leaves his
rental unit by the side door.
Next-door neighbor looks up and sees tap dancer and dog.
Neighbor gives tap dancer dirty look.
Retired tap dancer sees dirty look and wonders: Why? Why is he looking at me that way?
While blind poodle pees, tap dancer ponders: Oh, probably it is only that he thinks I'm one of those
rich weekend people.
