On the Porch

Your neighbor comes over. If you don't have a front porch and he knocks on the door, you have two choices: you either have to invite him in or step outside. You don't want to invite him in; that's too close. So you have to step outside, and then he's wondering the whole time why you're standing outside and why you didn't invite him in. There's no space for us to just get together.
