There are still two wicker chairs on the front porch. The bushes are neatly trimmed and the yellow rose bush in the corner is just starting to bloom. There are lemons on the tree by the side door. Yes, it is still Tim's neat grey house with the white trim. Except that its not.

Its not where Tim lives anymore. The front door has been painted a maroon color and the wicker chairs are a dark brown instead of white. The orange tree by the garage has been cut back into an odd shape. And the dog just inside the picket fence across the driveway is not Tim's old faithful beast Truff, but a playful cocker spaniel instead.

It is as if aliens came down in the night and replaced Tim's house with something similar but not quite the real thing, populated by Pod People and Pod Pets.

Yes, its been a year. Things change. I just don't have to like it.
