Ex-Police Officer Moves To Alaska and Gets Hilarious ‘Party’ Invitation From His Neighbor

There’s something to be said about moving away from a big city and into the peace and quiet of a rural area. My wife and I happen to live out on a small farm, with neighbors far enough away to give us all the privacy we could want. We had a friend come over and visit from Los Angeles for a few days, and the poor fellow kinda freaked out a bit over all the quiet. But, soon, our friend gained an appreciation for the peaceful, tranquility of our country lifestyle and even dreaded going back to the noise and bustle of the city. In this fictional anecdote, a retired cop moves out into a secluded cabin in Alaska, only to meet his long-distance neighbor six months later, who’s throwing a Christmas party.

Tom had been in Police work for 25 years. Finally sick of the stress, he quits his job and buys 50 acres of land in Alaska as far from humanity as possible.

He sees the postman once a week and gets groceries once a month. Otherwise it’s total peace and quiet.

After six months of almost total isolation, someone knocks on his door. He opens it and a huge, bearded man is standing there.

‘Name’s Cliff, your neighbor from forty miles up the road. Having a Christmas party Friday night. Thought you might like to come at about 5:00…’

‘Great’, says Tom, ‘after six months out here I’m ready to meet some local folks Thank you.’

As Cliff is leaving, he stops. ‘Gotta warn you. Be some drinking’.’

‘Not a problem’ says Tom. ‘After 25 years in the business, I can drink with the best of ’em’.

Again, the big man starts to leave and stops. ‘More ‘n’ likely gonna be some fighting’ too.’

‘Well, I get along with people, I’ll be all right! I’ll be there. Thanks again.’

‘More ‘n likely be some wild sex, too,’

‘Now that’s really not a problem’ says Tom, warming to the idea. ‘I’ve been all alone for six months! I’ll definitely be there. By the way, what should I wear?’

‘Don’t much matter. Just gonna be the two of us.’
