i love thee...
BOOM! That's what I heard when I went to the tree fort today. A big boom of thunder. The clouds were angrily rolling over our house and tearing apart the blue sky. I figured this was the best time to go for a bike ride and get some fresh air before the rain came, so I rode down the street to check the mail. It started with a couple light drops and by the time I got to the mailbox I was soaked to the bone. It was movie raining. In addition, I had gotten a beautiful letter from my darling Kara(A). I ran inside, sat on the couch to read it, and then without waiting another minute I ran back outside and rode my bike again to the corner store to get some stamps. People must have thought I looked ridiculous, or insane, because I was literally drenched as if I had stepped into a shower right then...and I did. Not just a shower though, a violent shower that was more than perfect. On the way home it started to hail mint-sized beads of ice that stung my face as I pedaled for home. I kept my head down the rest of the way, not able to see past the sheets of pouring rain or the pellets of ice. As soon as I got home, I changed into dry clothes and made myself a cup of tea in my POPGOESMYHEART mug. It may sound really silly to all of you, but this afternoon couldn't get any better, except for if that letter in the mail was sent in person!
