Oh, it made me a little late, what with not wanting to drive in it and the bus being slowed down, and Mirna (who was buying me dinner) having to order for me so I wouldn't be late to the reading. But I do love rain, and it was glorious, walking through it in my red heels, red skirt, red umbrella. (Also a shirt, of course, not red.) Sometimes lightly drizzling down, sometimes increasing to a sharp shower, a furious rapping on the shield of my umbrella. And I got wet -- my shoes, my skirt, my bag. But it was warm and I was just happy to be out, in the rain.
After the reading (where I read "The Princess in the Forest," which went over well, and answered lots of questions mostly from fellow U of C folks, including one guy who said he knew me by sight when I was a freshman in the Shoreland, and wondered why he had never asked me out :-), I got to go out into the rain again, heading home. Mmm....
Maybe I should move to Seattle.
But maybe then I'd take it for granted.
