What's Your Next-Door Neighbor Story?

Snuck Out.

Sneaking out of the house to run and play at the park. Its around midnight. Wiggums hollow park was a few blocks away. To the basketball court my friends and i ran to. meet some guys near by, never met them before. we all introduced ourselfs. Tracy, briana, Tiffani, and abby we said. i looked closely and i saw that there was my next door neighbor. How awkword. I knew i was dead but wait he's just looking around. He had something in his hand with a box behind him. I asked him what it was and he pulled out a potato gun. we looked at eachother and what fun we had shooting at targets that passed us by. we played catch and hurt ourselfs bad. A couple hours later he had to go i was so scared he would tell my dad and that would suck for me grounded for life but he never did. now when he comes over its to see my brother. I always remind him of that night at the park. How fun im so glad nobody called the cops. Most importantly im glad nobody told my parents. we got home okay and we crawled into bed and us girls started talking about how much fun we had and who was the cutest. we laughed and talked till the sun rose up. then we passed out.
