anyhoo. before coming to work, i stopped by the naughty-neighbor's house. he kept playing "peek-a-peen." i've seen enough peen to not lose my senses whenever i see peen. he's the same age as me, but he's behaving like a 4 year-old. he's failing to appreciate that we are looking for different things. he'll have better luck, i think, at the ramble-at-the-lake or at the pickle-park out on the interstate.
