Remember elementary school? Sure you do. So, one of the best things about grade-school is that you get to go on field trips!! I remember plenty of great field trips…the interpretive center, the academy of sciences, the cookie factory. I also remember this one really sad day, when I was sick and unable to go on a field trip my class had planned to the zoo. The zoo!! I missed the zoo! And probably riding in a car with someone else’s parent and possibly a cute boy. The drama!
Well, being sick on a rainy day as an adult is kind of like being sick on field trip day as a kid. One of my most favorite activities is puddle frolicking, seconded closely by taking a run in the rain. This weekend, it poured. It dumped what Orange County considers buckets (Orange County has never been to the Northwest, but that’s a different story). I have not seen rain since I came here. And where was I? Inside.
Yup, Runner’s Delight was firmly entrenched on the couch, wincing every time she swallowed and whining to her very cute boy (at least I got the cute boy!) about her pain and suffering and her missing of the great wet outdoors.
I wish I could write a post about running in the rain of the OC. I can’t. But I can tell you how the OC doctors are on Sunday mornings (not terribly interested in your pain), what the rain in the outside garbage can sounds like (not much) and what ken’s veggie soup tastes like (delicious, even though I thought it was killing me to swallow it).
