Unexpected birthday gift
In the first few minutes of my thirty-second birthday, while I was rinsing a nectarine in the kitchen sink for my jet-lagged daughter, I received a shocking gift -- a full, frontal view of a completely naked male neighbor across the courtyard through my curtainless window. It was bound to happen, I guess. These neighbors think the shoji screens covering their windows are opaque. These shades do the job during the day, but at night, I see blurred nude bodies walking around, surfing the internet, rummaging through their dresser, etc. I am an unintentional voyeur. We really should get something for our kitchen windows, shouldn't we.
