In Which I Expect Light Shenanigans With Scattered Tomfoolery

I don’t mean to burden you with my small local problems, but: today has had all the markings of a rainy day. The overcast sky that sometimes gets dark enough you think they turned off the sun. The winds that sometimes get so breezy that the window fans go in reverse. That smell of rain. That mugginess. The people on the street nodding about how it all feels like rain. We’ve have everything about a rainy day except for the actual rain. It turns out there’s so little chance of rain that when you go check the forecast, the head of the weather department, Lionel P Weatherguy, actually calls you up to laugh at you. It is some of the un-rainiest rainy weather I’ve seen in a long time. It all seems like someone is trying to make fun of me, or someone in my microclimate anyway, and I don’t have the energy to deal with it.

Also please send rain because we could use it. I don’t know everyone else’s intentions but I plan to use it as rain.

    1. Ah, much appreciated! This should fit me well at least until the rain comes.

      (I apologize for this not posting right away. WordPress was overly suspicious of a post with two whole links in it even from someone who’s got pretty good track record here.)
