Now He Is “A Somebody.”

Mister Tough Guy, the neighbor who talks big, but doesn’t deliver, is now “A Somebody” here in our neighborhood.

I wrote earlier about him and his puffery – wanting to sign up and fight with the Ukrainians, pontificating about this and that in the neighborhood, and complaining about “Stepford residents.”

Well, now he is “A Somebody.”

Seems that he got someone on the homeowners’ board to change the setting of the back gate, so that it opens and closes faster than ever before.  In a perfect world, this is supposed to cut back on interlopers who don’t belong in our subdivision.

Now Mister Tough Guy is a “Stepford resident” – “A Somebody!”


I live among giants.
