I Think It's Me

Today the UPS man told me he was scared for me. We were talking about the weather. Yep, real frightening topic, that. But keep in mind he was speaking with me and that sometimes changes things.

He commented how nice he thought it was. 60 and sunny. I disagreed saying ten degrees cooler and raining would be ideal. After staring, open-mouthed for an overlong second, he decided I worry him. Apparently rain is supposed to be depressing, not desired.

I attempted to explain how soothing I find it to stand in the mist, absorbing the magic into my soul but I don’t think he got it. Obviously he’s never stood in the end of a rainbow. If he had, he’d understand. Instead he told me I’m the only person he’s ever met who wished for rain for reasons other than to end a drought.

Sigh. I can see I have my work cut out for me here. It’s supposed to rain tomorrow. I’ll keep you posted.

I have to agree with the UPS man. I prefer 60's and above, with sunshine. BUT...there's nothing nicer than hearing rain on the roof when you're snuggled warm in bed and knowing you DON'T have to get up!

Nah, you aren't strange. I find rain so soothing.

Don't worry about him. My hubby thinks I'm strange because I like snow and cold weather. I think he's a wimp. We're even. Enjoy your soothing rain. I like rain, too, if I can stay indoors and nap and not have to go out in it.
