Furthermore, all of my housewifery and grocery shopping and such was all caught up. RIPE I say! What to do?!
Well, there was one slight glitch. The reason I'm so caught up on everything is that it's been raining non-stop for two days.
What? That's really rare around here. Usually we get these flash flood gully washer wham-bams. In and out in about 30 minutes or less. What's this two-, going on three-day business??
I was getting grumpy. I wanted to play outside. Can you hear it? Can you hear the whine in my voice? It's really irritating, go back and read it again, I'll wait...
I was grumpy and blaming my grumpiness on the rain. This is upstate New York weather. This is why we left upstate New York. Waaaah. (hear it??)
Blame it on the rain.
In 1989, I was working as a summer intern with four other university students. It was a fun and memorable summer, of the carefree college days. We five - three guys, me and another girl - often got together during off-work hours, to go out dancing and such. One of our favorite groups was Milli Vanilli.
Remember Milli Vanilli?? And their epic fall from grace?? Anyone?
I was really disappointed when the truth about them came out, I'd been a big fan! So many good times were accompanied by good ol' Rob and Fab! Or... NOT Rob and Fab... *ahem*.
So I was linking up with Mama Kat again this week, thinking about the prompt:
1.) A song you loved when you were younger, but now listen to the words and…
I thought back to my fave 80s tunes, and I remembered Milli Vanilli. Blame it On the Rain came to mind since my ripe day of opportunity was looking like I might be spending it building an ark.
As I listened to [anonymous] sing the words, I was thinking, "Ah, shuddup about the rain, you whiner! Your missed opportunities are your own dang fault! Quit making excuses, whoever you are!"
|First, lemme take|
Then I stopped my own pity party, got out the always- willing Bella, and went for a freaking awesome bike ride in the rain!
And the rain actually let up quite a bit, like it was just waiting to see who would go out despite it being around. The fair weather riders were absent, and it was just us die-hards on the pathways.
You meet the nicest people on rainy days.
