Trains, Planes, and Wishes

“Shh. Shh. Wait a minute. Wait a minute.”

Terri Little strained to hear her neighbor’s warning. Fighter jets flew overhead, drowning out her words and rattling the ice tea glasses on the patio table.

Laura Evans tracked the sound, her blue eyes scanning the cloudless Arizona sky. As the twin jets circled to the north and their rumble rolled off the flat valley surrounding the retirement village of Twilight, she lowered a cautioning hand then nodded.

“They’re practicing for the air show next month.”

“Damn planes.” Terri popped an ice-cold grape into her mouth and crunched down, the juice refreshing in the late April heat. “They never told me it would be so loud here.”

Snowbirds

Janice Delaney hated Tina Sparrow. Not hate-hate, like she wanted to stab her in the heart with a steak knife, but more like get-out-of-my-face-I-never-want-to-see-you-again.

The animosity between the neighbors stemmed from the cockroach incident. Tina’s condo had them. Janice’s, separated by a common wall, did not. The “bug man” sprayed on the first Friday of every month; the cost included in their HOA fees, but once the little buggers packed their bags and headed inside, the problem became the owner’s.

Recycle Wednesday

“When is recycle day?”

Judy Frasier rolled her eyes. “Wednesday,” she shouted from the front of the house. Dear God, the man couldn’t remember anything. Birthdays, anniversaries—he’d forget Christmas if not for all the commercials.

“This Wednesday?” Russ asked, walking into the house with an empty plastic bag in his hands.

“The second and fourth Wednesday of every month, just like the HOA guidelines said when we moved in.” She would dig them out of the filing cabinet and shove them under his nose if she thought it would do any good.

He waved his hand in dismissal. “I’m too busy to keep track.”

Busy? Doing what? Golfing? Swimming in the pool at the rec center around the corner? Attending every estate sale in Twilight, Arizona and bringing home junk he either sold at a loss or she threw out?
