>rain

>Thursdays are my one full day off, so of course it rained. All day. Not to say I’m a hater of rain, but a pesky cold, steady rainfall really makes things difficult when you live in a city and want to get around. Especially when you don’t have an umbrella.


For whatever reason, I’ve never owned an umbrella. I don’t really know why; I think sometimes I imagine I am superior to weather…. I can conquer the rain! I don’t need a shield! It’s just water! I think my dad hassled me for ten years to buy a raincoat, and I finally did a year or two ago. It’s salmon colored.

In any case, I wanted to walk to a nearby coffee shop to do some reading and tea drinking-fitting for a gloomy day. Problem was, it was pouring, and I also wanting to bring my laptop. Rain+computer+lack of umbrella= a potential disaster, so I sucked up my pride and asked my housemate for his umbrella. I guess it came in handy.

To take extra precaution, I made a poncho for my backpack out of a garbage bag. I made sure the umbrella covered the bag more than me, so while my computer and books were salvaged, I got pretty wet. ( I probably shouldn’t have worn skinny jeans with Birkenstocks, but I also don’t own rain boots. Obviously).


Moral of the story? I should invest in an umbrella. And maybe even rain boots, if I’m feeling extra adventurous.

The reality of it? I probably wont. Maybe I’ll put them on my Christmas list.



ps) Totally unrelated but we all know pictures are exciting: I’ve learned that Zoe likes to sleep in my bed. Maybe she’s sensed that I’m the only other female in the house and she wants to bond. I dig.
