Rear Window


We have a great view from our apartment. I absolutely love it. We can see the lake during the day, beautiful sunsets in the early evening, and the lights of the city at night.
All day and night we watch planes fly in to O'Hare, and Midway airport. They never stop... plane after plane, all day long.
I don't think I could ever get sick of this view. Every morning I raise the blinds up and gaze out onto the city.  Well, every day the week I’ve lived here.

Apartment 015
We've also observed people in other buildings surrounding us.  Eric happened to be standing by the window and saw an eighty year old pull up her blinds, completely naked, before she scampered away.  I haven’t seen anything that scandalous, yet.  But I’ll keep my eyes out for something good.

Eric and I are wondering if we should invest in some binoculars and do some spying.  He could be James Stewart and I could be Grace Kelly!  But then again, I wouldn’t want someone spying on me. 
Do you think people in other building are spying on us?  Have you ever spied on your neighbors?

I bet they are.  That’s creepy to think about.  I mean, they might be watching ME, typing on my computer and watching Cooking Channel.  Yup, it’s wild over here tonight.  Just wait until I crack open the Trader Joes All Natural Fruit Jellies.

What?!  I have a headache!  Sugar cures migraines.  Heh heh.

  1. What a perfectly lovely view. I can see why you are so happy there and I'm glad for you...keep your clothes on!

  2. Of course, you should buy binoculars. EVERYONE looks at everyone. That's why people love highrises. Just assume that people are looking at you and keep the blinds down when you don't want them to see. And that really is one gorgeous view! Actually lots of gorgeous views from all your different windows.

  5. I read this as I just watched a neighbor walk by our open window 3 times, looking in. I'm kind of creeped out right now. But I do have to say, if I lived in a big city, I'd probably be taking a look or two!!

  6. When I lived in Southern California during law school, the across the way neighbor in my apartment complex was having very very loud sex with her boyfriend. Not only were her backdoor blinds not drawn, but the door was not even shut. Occasionally you could see them flip over when changing positions. I am still traumatized.
