Day 168

30 posts in thirty days.

30 random facts about me.

Fun Fact #18: I love the rain.

It's soothing to me. Most people don't like it; they get wet, they don't know how to drive in it (and flood their cars), and they look at the overcast clouds as a bad day.

Not me.

When I say soothing, I mean just that. Some days, I can lay in the bed (when I don't have anything to do, which for me, is extremely rare) and just listen to the rain and sleep on and off all day.

Other days, I go play in the rain. Dance in it. Walk in it. Feel the coolness of it. Now, some people might think I'm crazy, and you're probably one of them, dear reader. But I'm not, I just like the rain.

I think I like it so much for the cleansing effect. Yes, I know, I can take a shower and get the same "feeling". But not really. It's like a wave of euphoria comes over me in the rain. I can just look up in the sky and close my eyes and feel the water wash away bad feelings, broken dreams, disturbed thoughts, and stressful situations.

Living in VA, most of the time, when we have rain, we have thunder and lightning as well. So, that just adds to it. (Side note, I do not play in the rain when the thunder and lightning lets me know it's closer than 10 miles to me.)

It's raining right now, and I'm fighting the urge to go out and play in it, because I've got to finish this post. Did you know that some people get a good sleep when it rains because of the constant sound? I'm one of those people. I've kissed in the rain before, but to be honest, it was with one person, and it was about 10 years ago. But I liked it then, so I doubt it'll be any different now. I want one of those 50 First Date kisses in the rain, you know? Or even better, that Spiderman kiss in the rain, although, I don't think I'll be hanging upside down for that one.

My mom teases me, because she knows I'll say the same thing all the time, been saying it since my early teens. "Why do you not run when it rains out? You just get all wet." "Well, mom, I'm not sugar, I'm not gonna melt. But my ex says I ain't shit, so I guess I won't float, either." She gets a kick out of that every time.

Ok, you know what? I'm done. The rain is calling me. Time to put on my dancing shoes and go have some fun.

i am definitely one that hates to be out in the rain, loathes to drive in the rain, and you will never catch me dancing freely in it without proper head coverage (you know, with the hair and all) but the perfect rain moment for me is when i am at home alone and i can open the bedroom window and hear the rain flowing into the creek in our backyard. glass of wine, music and a good book certainly adds to it.

it's hard for me to relax, like really relax so that rain moment does it for me.

Yes ma'am, I do. Writing while it's raining outside can be very soothing.
