A Brotherless Darrell

One of my neighbor's scares me.

He's one of those atypical loners and lives directly across the street from me. Whenever he sees me out with the dog he makes a point of coming out and telling me that my dog makes him laugh (I have no idea how to take this...does he mean my dog's appearance is funny? Sure, Roger is an English Bulldog and this breed looks different...but funny? Funny to a looney guy?!?).

He's the kind of guy that has the strongest potential for making the paper under one (or more) of the following headlines:

You'd be a lil' wary of this fellow, too.
