It was no surprise to anybody that ended up at a Diwali festival. I love India, or better put, I love the India I have built in my head from an overdose of Indian movies and music.

You see, I'm afraid my creepy neighbor is lurking somewhere in the dark waiting for the perfect opportunity to start a conversation.
