Frosted Flakes: Being Neighborly

What is the best etiquette for new neighbors?

We have a new neighbor.

I waved once, but I feel like it’s about time for us to go introduce ourselves. I can’t seem to figure out how to do it without being a weirdo though.

This is difficult for many reasons:

  1. I am kind of a weirdo. Maybe not a weirdo, but super awkward.
  2. I don’t have any experience with new neighbors as a child, as I grew up on a farm and none of the neighbors on our road moved.
  3. I feel that we should take some sort of gift, but baked goods seem to be a no-no in a COVID-19 world.

I think a housewarming gift is necessary.

What to take though? Beer was my first thought, but then what if he doesn’t drink? Or what kind of beer do I bring? So many questions.

Maybe I should just leave it up to my husband.

Anyway, on to the flakes.
