Come Christmas time my daughter and son-in-law argue whether to leave the window (with the tree in front of it) blinds open or shut. My daughter wants them shut so no one could look in and my son-in-law wants them open, allowing the people who drive by to see the tree. Personally, I appreciate my son-in-laws reasoning as I love getting a glimpse into other peoples homes.

My neighbors, who live across the street offer a glimpse into their home and lives nightly as the blinds are open a light is always on. Looking into their kitchen is like having my own version of ‘Midnight Theater.’ Looking into their kitchen I’ve become familiar with their nighttime tea habits, as they fill the kettle with water and place it on the stove to brew. As to what kind of tea it is, I’d have to ask and hey, I’m not nosy.

In my free seat at ‘Midnight Theater’ I’ve been entertained watching them play games with others. As to who’s the winner, I couldn’t tell you. In order to know the winner I would have to ask and hey, I’m not nosy.

In my front row seat at ‘Midnight Theater’ I’ve been witness to marital fights. I know because the hand motions and body language speaks to me as though I’m watching a silent movie. As to what they fight about I’d have to ask and hey, I’m not nosy.

I have to go now. It’s getting dark and I need to close the window blinds so my neighbors can’t look in. You know how nosy some people can be.
