Okay so I realize most of you, my friends, reading this post do not live in Los Angeles, but I can assure you the rain is a catastrophic event somewhere kin to snow in Alabama. This is only a slight exaggeration. I’m not sure if people stayed home because of the rain or what, but I made it to work in record time from my house. It’s a torrential downpour, but I made it to the office by 7:30am. I declare this a national holiday. Yes, I’m writing this post a little later than usual, but I promise it’ll be worth it. Okay, okay I shouldn’t make promises that I can’t keep, but here we go with a list of things to do in the rain.
1. Wear cute galoshes.
Remember what made rainy days fun when you were a kid? Oh yeah it was those super cute hot pink galoshes with the yellow flowers painted all over them. You don’t have to be a kid to get a kick out of some super awesome galoshes with pretty design or even galoshes with a fashion sense like, these.
2. Play in mud puddles
Okay so I felt a little bad when I was driving “west down Ventura Blvd.” this morning and pretty much doused a poor guy on the sidewalk, but it made me think of one other thing that we enjoyed as children and don’t seem to do anymore, play in mud puddles. Remember how you used to giggle and dance with glee as you got yourself all wet. Of course you immediately cried for a change of clothes after even though your mom warned you that would happen. You probably still don’t listen to mom too much so just go ahead and dance in the mud puddles.
3. Make out
I’ve done this about one time I think, and it was just as romantic as I imagined for the first couple of minutes. So I suggest going to get your best guy or girl and taking them outside for a giant smooch this evening.
4. Build a fort
I probably wouldn’t suggest doing this one at the office, but your boss might be cool with it. I’ll let you know how my fort building goes later, okay? In all seriousness though if you can stay home on a rainy day then build a fort out of sheets in your living room and enjoy it. You’ve worked hard and you deserve it.
I can’t even imagine a better sound for sleeping than the sound of rain on a tin roof. Now, you are like me and probably don’t have a tin roof, but you can still sleep to the soothing sounds of the rain coming down. You’ll be glad you enjoyed the downtime with a nap when the sun comes out and it’s time to play again!
