I think you'd find it much easier to move your frame of reference one
line forward and think in terms of remembering the previous line, e.g.:

for n,curr in enumerate(open("file")):
    if n>1:
        print n,curr
        print m,prev
    m,prev = n,curr

Of course, if the file isn't so big, then you could use readlines as you
mention.

Cheers,
Terry
