rain


I like my new home for the most part
But there is one part
That drives me apart

That is...how it always smells like urine outside. All the time. How it wafts in through our ever-efficient swamp cooler. How it burns and wrinkles and offends my nose. And how it contributes to the queasiness of my already temperamental tummy.

But today...Today it's raining {!} and I am doing a native dance in hope that the heavens open wide and do their part

to wash that obscene odor far far away from my new home,

my little part
of the world.

Oh how wonderful!!! I wish it would rain here to wash away the nasty smell of cows... and sheep... and the ever present hay wafting around that makes my hay fever kill. Oh well. So glad you have rain!

Oh, I love the rain! After spending most of my life in the desert, I love it and appreciate it even more. There is nothing quite as wonderful as dancing in the rain!
