Today was one of the first real down pours that I’ve seen since I’ve been here in Tn. I’m not going to say that it’s the worst I’ve seen, but it was kinda cool.

After dealing with the crappy highway conditions we got into Spring Hill and stopped off at the Papa Murphy’s to get a pizza for us and the kids. At this point the clouds were still dripping on us pretty bad. I didn’t want to get out of the car, but I had to. I made a mad dash to the covered curb, you know, shoulders raised high and grabbing my pant legs as if that was going to help.

When I got to the curb I was standing next to the ATT store and noticed the girl inside walking around like a wet zombie. It looked like she fell over in a puddle or someone decided to through a cheap water bed at her. I felt so bad…

She waddled over to the front door and unlocked it, then she turned on the lights as if to say were open for business, but I could tell she wasn’t very happy about the whole situation…

The one thing I felt really bad about was that she happened to be wearing a nice white business shirt, which was now completely drenched, and most likely absolutely see through. I kinda wanted to tell her she should just go home, close up shop, get a cup of coffee and dry off.

In the end I went in and commented about the rain and asked her about my phone and some stuff. No, I wasn’t trying to sneak a peak, I honestly felt bad.

On the flip side… Playing in the rain is probably one of the most fun things to do… Especially when it’s not cold…
