Can’t you see that it’s just raining? There is no need to go outside.
Actually, I love the rain. It reminds me of high school. Rainy days at school were the best. There was a different attitude all around. The atmosphere changes when it rains. There were more smiles. Even the teachers were nicer.
I am still at peace when I wake up to the sound of raindrops. It tells me that it will be a good day. I reminisce about the days of high school and how everyone is in a good mood. Work is not like that. Maybe it’s an age thing, or maybe it’s a work thing, or maybe it’s even an Idaho thing… but there is not a contemporary love for rain that I once shared when I was younger.
The rain makes me want to sleep in, make banana pancakes and pretend like it’s the weekend. Instead, I do the responsible thing and head to work. Maybe that’s why everyone is so upset on rainy days. They all shared my idea of sleeping in, but couldn’t.
The next time it rains think back. Remember of when you were a kid. Remember how much fun it was to run, and dance, and sing, and laugh in the rain. And, don’t sleep in. Wake up early and make those banana pancakes. At least you wont go to work on an empty stomach…
