Once More, With Feeling

As the Tuna clan is quite fond of amusement park rides that spin and speed and dip and curve and flip your stomach inside-out, it is not unusual to see us, after a particularly fabulous ride, make a split second decision to (in the event of a short line only) run like the wind, and attempt to ride it again without waiting.

With a cry of let's do that again!! we bolt past our ride host and run like the wind in a giant circle all the way around the ride until we reach the entrance point once again.

This has nothing to do with anything except that for the past seven days I have seen the same damn rain cloud dumping the same damn rain on my same damn head while my same damn umbrella laughs rudely (albeit dryly) in the car because I'm too dumb to remember to bring it with me. I'm quite certain that somewhere up in the sky a mischievious grey nimbus stormus paininthebutticus finishes its afternoon drenching, yells let's do that again and runs like the wind back to Wisconsin.

Really. It's enough already.

Amen to that. I saw blue sky today for a nanosecond and then it immediately went grey again.

When I first moved to Louisiana I quickly learned that an umbrella is almost as essential to being properly dressed as clothing is. I have three or four umbrellas in my car, one in my school bag, and several more at home. I also have a tacky one in my office.

But I do hope your rain ends soon.

New England is getting the same, and you know once it gets done with grey, rain, and temps in the 40s, 50s and low 60s it's going to flip overnight to 80's and humid.
