We've had a mysterious couple walking through our neighborhood for the past few months. They walk every evening just after dark and every morning just at sun-up. He always wears the same white shorts and no shirt and she always wears the same clothing, too.
They walk slowly and affectionately. And if a car's headlights illuminate them, they immediately move into a tight embrace with his back to the road. They remain in that embrace until the lights are no longer on them. Yet when their activity activates my motion sensing front porch light, they linger in that spotlight - again in the embrace.
When there are no headlights or front porch lights to find them, they have specific stopping points where they always pause for a lengthy embrace and kiss. One is on our corner and another is behind a van across the street.
And if that isn't enough, my neighbor came across them one early morning. The man stood on the sidewalk watching while the woman frolicked in someone's lawn sprinklers.
So we are left wondering are they exhibitionists? Are they casing houses? Are they homeless?
The only thing I really know for certain is that it's pretty good entertainment. I'm pathetic, I know.
