You know that saying, "The grass is always greener on the other side." I guess it's a metaphor for the envy neighbors feel for one another, but I believe the grass really does look greener in our neighbor's yards. And I think I know why. It's all about the angle you view the grass from. Everyone's lawn looks great if you view it from a low angle. It's only when you walk over it, and gain an aerial perspective, that all the imperfections are revealed.

The moral? - Always look down upon your neighbors to make yourself feel better.
