Do you remember Gladys Kravitz—the nosey neighbor who lived next door to Samantha and Darrin Stephens—on the television show Bewitched? She was always curious about what other people were up to:
Samantha Stephens: Oh, hi, Mrs. Kravitz. What a surprise (not!).
Gladys Kravitz: I came over for a snoop of, uh, a scoop of sugar. I hope I’m not disturbing you.
Our dog Willa—aka Mrs. Kravitz—is a snoop in the first degree. When our neighbors are in their back yard, she peeks through the fence!
Willa would do well to heed Hank Williams’ song, Mind Your Own Business!
I have more than a dash and a dollop of curiosity. When I was a young girl, my hero was Harriet the Spy.
Have you ever stuck your nose where it didn’t belong?
