Day 7, The Tardy Day

on
August 4, 2010

May 18, 2010

It rained. And then it rained some more. And just for good luck, it rained a boatload more. For five hours. On me.

It alternated between pouring, deluge, cats and dogs, and “where’s the ark?” For the first three hours, I was reasonably happy. Enjoying myself. No, really. But…
