Creative wooing the ballsy way?

We got home after dark Saturday night from the beach as you all know. On Sunday I get up to let the dog out and I see there is a ball in the backyard. OK. This isn't all that unusual. We have thrown stray balls back over the fence for the neighbors before.

So head out to the yard and pick up the ball so I can throw it back over. I notice there are some drawings on the ball.

For those of you who can't clearly read it, it says "Do you want to be on top? Love Mandee".

Upon reading that I began to wonder if this ball does in fact belong to the neighbor behind us. They moved in a few months ago so we don't know them very well but they have a couple of young kids. None old enough to write that. The neighbors next to us watched our house while we were gone and I know the ball isn't theirs. The third neighbor that shares the back fence on that end of the yard we don't know at all.

On the one hand I want to return the ball if it belongs to a neighbor. I do not, however, wish to return it to the wrong neighbor and accidentally send the wrong message if you get my drift. There is a small possibility that it was thrown over the fence from the road nearby but it is on the complete opposite side of a very long yard from the road. What do you think? Throw the ball away? No one has claimed it? Maybe they are too embarrassed? Of course I am the freaky neighbor who goes out and takes pictures of the ball to post on my blog so who am I to judge? Maybe I just have a dirty mind and poor sweet Mandee was talking about the top bunk?

I love the 2nd to last line. I think out loud to myself like that all the time. ;)

Here's what I'd do if confronted with this situation:

1) Laugh

2) Blog about it

3) Decide if I like my neighbors. If yes, throw ball away. If no, proceed to step 4

4) Go to neighbor's door, knock, and confront them with the evidence in an effort to make them REALLY really uncomfortable

That's disturbing. Trash it.

I can only say that if I had accidentally tossed a ball into your yard with a suggestion of position written on it, I would break the trespassing laws and retrieve it. People are just weird.

I'm just wondering where the heck Mandee's blog is..."So I propositioned Chuck with the ball, like you guys suggested. I just wrote the note on the ball and tossed it in his back yard. I still haven't heard from him, and it's been like a WHOLE week! You don't think he gave me a false address do you?"

Wow! What a find!!! LOL! Just throw it out...returning to any neighbor you don't know would just leave them to believe you are mandy...and looking for a good time apparently!

LMAO!

Maybe your husband put the ball in the backyard. Hubba! Hubba!
