What does that mean? Hubby and I worked outside the other day adding scalloped edging around two Century plants we have at the end of the driveway. We wanted to add stone edging but couldn't find the smaller circles so had to substitute with a fiberboard kind of material. It's sturdy, scalloped like we wanted it, has a ten-year warranty against rot and water damage, and is attractive. What more could we want?
Neighbors across the street came over and said it looked good and asked where we got it. They examined it saying they'd never seen it before. Beaming, we told them where they could buy it. Maybe we started a trend and other neighbors would get the hint to start working in their yards! After all, it's that time of year.
Five minutes later our other neighbor came home and seeing us working came over to chitchat. He glanced down at the edging and said...it's different. What does that mean?
It's different...over the years I've come to realize when you get a response like that it means they don't like it. New hairdo... ah...it's different. New car, lawn ornament, outfit or dish, it's different. What, do people think we're stupid? LOL We all use the same response when we can't bring ourselves to lie and say it's beautiful, tastes great, looks good.
What do you say? Do you agree or disagree with my interpretation?
