rainy thursday.

is it just me, or does it always rain on thursday?

i really don’t mind the rain though, especially at this time of year. it’s practically mid-october. the leaves are turning. wal-mart is selling pumpkins. high school football is in full swing. and the yankees have capped off a disappointing season.

yup, looks like fall is here. goodbye sunshine. hello gloom.

to a certain extent, the rain is soothing. lazy days that don’t require a trip outside lend themselves to a little drizzle. and after weeks and weeks of intense heat, a little wetness isn’t too disappointing.

but of course, little is the key word. no one wants rain all week or month – or for that matter, any extended period of time. but every now and then, heck, why not?

the interesting thing about percipitaiton is, very few, if any, will admit to liking rain. sunshine is the norm – the mainstream, the widely accepted. what, you actually like it when it rains? you must be depressed. clearly, there’s something wrong with you.

actually, i’m perfectly fine thanks. i just like a little variety in my weather forecast.

use that arguement. because as widely accepted as sunshine is, it’s hard to argue against variety.
