Betrayed by rain.
How could rain, the thing I love so much, betray me? While everyone cursed the rain; claimed ‘enough is enough’; complained, whined, moaned and groaned, I never waffled. Not once. My love for rain knows no bounds. It’s unceasing and unconditional. Well, it’s unconditional with ONE exception: standing in the rain during a soccer match kind of sucks. Oh, and rain on race day isn’t so great either.
All this love from me and then it goes and floods portions of Fairfax County, causing the school district to cancel classes today.
Generally, I don’t forgive and forget all that easily, but today I’m in good spirits (powered by my affection for gloomy storm clouds, I suppose) and am therefore willing to give the wet stuff a second chance. Even though school was canceled and I didn’t get to go to the gym, I’ll graciously absolve rain of its recent school closing/routine interrupting transgressions.
Besides, the kids are outside, having a ball. And the less they bother me, the better.
Also….I’m not out of coffee, diet Pepsi, vegetables, chocolate or tortilla chips. With all my food vices conveniently at my fingertips, this canceled school day (and my lack of gym time) shall not affect my spirits.
Not one bit.
Betrayed, but not dismayed.
