Here Comes the Rain Again

I love the rain, I really do. But only when I am not obliged to get out of the house. Only when I can stay in my warm bed with a good book and a cup of steaming coffee. Only when I can cook a potful of sinigang and sip the hot broth.

Today I hate the rain. Try waiting for a tricycle for 15 minutes. Try riding one - even for just a short while - with the wind blowing in the rain. Try waiting for a cab for another 15-20 minutes while all the cars and jeeps that pass by get you wet because they do not care.

I hate the rain even more because we are supposed to go to the beach this weekend. If it does not stop raining, we might have to cancel our plans AND I don't like the thought of that.

I am whining...blame it on the rain!

  1. I love the rain too. But I hated it this morning when it started pouring while I was in the jeep, forcing me to jump into muddy, yucky puddles when I got off, and wade through streaming, dirty rainwater all the way to Citibank shelter. Otherwise, I love curling up with a book, a hot mug, and the sound of rain on my window.
