Me: (as usual) Good morning.
Him: (as usual)________.
Me: (thinking maybe he is just hard of hearing) Good Morning.
Me: (not thinking, just blurting out) Excuse me, but have I done something to make you angry or has my dog done something you don't like. I often see you walking and say "good morning" and you have never acknowledged or responded to me. I am very sorry if I have done something to offend you.
Him: Um, uh, oh, well, I am usually praying when I am walking....I am saying Hail Marys so I don't notice much.
Me: (finally) Um, uh, oh, well, that's great....have a nice day.
Well, at least now I know I haven't done anything to offend him (at least before today). Now maybe he will be praying for the crazy neighbor lady when he walks.
