I'm a witch and naturally inquisitive...  
So last week I was reading Pratchett's "Hat Full of Sky" and there was a line in it that went something like: 'Talking about it will make it better. Okay, so it won't, but I'm a witch and naturally inquisitive. Tell me what's going on.'

Despite the fact that I can't remember the exact line I applaud the sentiment.

My neighbour's home. My neighbour doesn't come home very often - the house was his mother's and he's been kinda doing it up with what we all thought was the intention of renting it out. When he got married last year he and his wife sometimes stayed there on a Thursday and since the wall between the houses is not the thickest I got to hear her annoying whiny voice a lot. (And let's leave aside the completely stereotypical view that one might be surprised he got married at all given his fondness for boy bands and Scissor Sisters...).

When I got back home on Saturday I saw the light was on in their house and his car was in the drive. I've since heard him coughing (a lot, he seems really sick) and the dog barking a little. (Big dog, loud, but doesn't bark that often so it's cool with me). I have not heard the TV from his place, nor has he played any music whilst I've been home. And neither have I heard her.

He and I don't particularly get on (his mate is the guy I'm sure nicked the ladders from the back of my house), so I can't justifiably call round to see if he's okay.

Can I get away with the "I'm a nosy person, tell me what's going on?" approach?

(Oh, and I didn't make it a week without again getting spoiled for an upcoming SPN. Joy. (casting and title spoiler again - when will people learn that episode titles are spoilers?!))

I personally do not consider casting or episode titles to be spoilers. I figure anything that can be found in TV Guide, I'm okay with knowing.

But I guess everyone has different definitions of a spoiler.

I'd be nosy, but pretend to be paying the concerned neighbour call. He's probably too sick to notice you're behaving out of character.
