Neighbors

Where I live we are 32 families owning together our small apartment block. Most of us have lived here for long and we quarrel occasionally, go to each others new year parties and have shared days of work where we paint our outdoor furniture and garden the roses. What we also share in a rather un-organized manner are toys and dvd’s. Right now the kids are into Star Wars and I realize that we have quit a proportion of our next door neighbors collection of Lego Star Wars dvd’s. It is a little bit like temporary gifts, we have some of their stuff, their neighbor has some of ours and over the course of the year these things should level out. Cooking dinner and watering plants while some are away also counts, but sometimes we also talk about those who only take the benefits, and worries a bit about our own standing.
