How Wet??

We walked under 5% to 10% chance-of-rain clouds. When almost to the creek, the halfway point, we felt sprinkles. I persuaded John to go on to the creek with me, and right away urged him to go back home. He dislikes raindrops on his head. Bless his heart, he kept walking with me. Real rain fell from the creek all the way home.

I was wet enough that:

I took off my glasses to see the road.

My eyebrows failed to function.

My shoes squished with each step – wet from the top. John heard the squishy sounds!!

We came in via the laundry room to remove shoes.

I laid clothes out to dry before putting them in the laundry basket.

My hair needed no extra water before the application of shampoo.

John discovered his jacket was water-repellent. I was not wearing a jacket, and I found my skin was as waterproof as it ever was. Thankfully, the camera and phone were not harmed. There is no selfie. If there were one, John would frame it and silently point to it on every cloudy day.

  1. Thank You, God for the new phones with cameras, eh? Oh, and that we do not melt when wet. I would have been tempted to not even bother with shampoo, but then there’s that pesky dust that clings to the trees. Oh look, a patch of sunlight through the clouds here. I shall think of you as I chase it. 😊

  2. Your 5% to 10% odds seem to have gone up quite a bit there. Well done on both completing the walk anyway.. You must have been quite bedraggled by the end.I hope you enjoyed the rest of your day.

    1. That was marvelous! Thank you. I have heard that song many times, but I didn’t know the words.

      I was going to ask how you got this in the comment, but it looks like you copied the address and pasted it there. Do you know how to put a photo in a comment? That’s what I need to learn.
