Like not quite torrential downpour
But still a good cats-and-dogs shower.
I do morning car duty.
I like to call it lightsaber duty.
Because I get a cool lightsaber thing.
I LOVE the rain.
I have found the one thing I don't like about rain.
Parents stop following the rules which then backs up traffic ALL the way up the street!!!!
Let's just say I was tardy to my class because PARENTS FORGOT TO PULL FORWARD!!!!
I do love the rain though.
I had an umbrella, but the rain was falling sideways.
So there was no point.
I put it away and let the sweet cool rain fall on me.
Like a fresh start to my already rough morning.
(20mph busses causing me to be late) (But at least they were safe!)
(There was also an unfortunate event with my frozen eclairs... we don't talk about that though...)
I love the rain.
I know a large group of people get a little grumpy.
They don't like their hair getting messed up.
Their makeup running
Ruining their clothes
Or just feeling damp for the rest of the day. (understandable)
I was a little uncharacteristically grumpy about the rain first thing.
Then I saw a student look up at the rain and just laugh.
She sauntered through the rain soaking up every bit of happiness
That is when I decided I don't NEED an umbrella.
And my day got decidedly better.
TLDR: Rain is a good reset button to your day (But only if you actually like the rain and maybe even dancing in it!)
