And now, John presents the inaugural edition of: Conversations Between the Neighbors Who Live In The Apartment Next Door (Translated From the Spanish)

"We should have a party this weekend."
"You know, I was thinking the same thing! I already made up a list of people we should invite."
"Great! I know there will be a lot of kids coming, so we need to make sure it's a time when they're not in school."
"No problem - we can start around 10pm on Saturday night and go until at least 2 or 3. There are not too many five year olds with 1 AM appointments!"
"Good thinking. Say, that's a pretty long list - there must be 60 people on there! How will we ever fit all those people into our apartment?"
"Oh, we don't have to - just open the door, we'll use the hallway too."
"Wow, you really do think of everything. OK, smart guy: how do we create a suitable party atmosphere in that drab hallway?"
"Way ahead of you, darling - I upgraded the stereo last week to something far louder and I made sure to get an extra speaker for just such an occasion. We can send the kids out to the hallway where they can run freely, stick the speaker out there, and crank it up."
"I'm so glad you planned ahead. I'll start pulling out all of our favorite merengue albums. Everybody loves merengue."
"Indeed they do, darling; indeed they do."
