After all I’ve only known them for six or eight years. No point rushing into these things.
Not counting Landlady and Ian who are kind of special cases, D&L are my closest friends in the gulch. They gave me keys to their place once before, when they were having troubles and needed somebody to come in and take care of things while they were off taking care of other things. But that was a specific case; when it was over, I gave the keys back. I didn’t need to have keys to their place, and they were more comfortable with my not having keys to their place. It’s not distrust, it’s just…privacy.
I’ve got keys to several other places, because sometimes things need maintenance. But D&L never wanted to go there. This is trust. Trust is earned. I thought it was kind of cool, that’s all.
