The Neighbours on the Other Side

The neighbours on the other side are no help. Once I thought their house was on fire but it was only a candle flame moving about behind a window. Also, the other day, the girl from that house was out the front with a can of insect repellant.
“Watch out!” she said to me. “I just found a redback spider in my mailbox.”
She offered to spray my mailbox, in case there was one there too.
People around these parts are just too kind, that’s the trouble. Particularly when it comes to mailboxes.
