Dear So and So

Texas Monkey is a blog I read and every Tuesday Shayna posts a Dear So and So. I love these, and this week I have been inspired to write my own.

Dear Upstairs Neighbor,

I want to thank you for giving me so many life lessons this past year. You have exposed me to many different types of music, it was so soothing when I was trying to go to bed early. The sweet vibration throughout my whole apartment was a nice touch. I also want to thank you for making me feel less alone, I think your surround sound was a great addition, and now I know you love action movies. It was like I was right there watching it with you. Those helicopters and explosions sound so real!

You have also taught me effective communication. I have noticed that when you yell at the top of your lungs every one listens... that is how you get a message across! You have also made this non smoker appreciate smoking. I never realized that cigarette butts and ashes made such nice patio decor. No worries, though I made note of it for my next apartment, we all know it will all be in the next Home and Garden.

Lastly, I could tell you really cared because you would make sure I wasn't late for work by jumping up and down and slamming doors and making my whole apartment shake. I am actually not really sure what technology you are using to do this, but I am impressed! Sign me up!

So thanks for the great year. I am so sad I will never see you again after the next two weeks. It has been GREAT!

Your appreciative downstairs neighbor.


  1. OMG this had me rolling, great way of wording it! I know you weren't laughing going through it but don't you feel better getting it out there now! Good ones!

  2. Yes, I do feel MUCH better now that it is out there. I actually had FUN while writing this. Haha. I will make sure to participate more often!
