From the Wet Pocket of the Keeper

Or: Rain

Or: It’s still raining

Or: It’s STILL RAINING!

Have you been outside today?!? Don’t go if you haven’t. Seriously, stay inside with some pie and coffee. You can trust me because I’ve pretty much spent the whole day in the great outdoors and the slosh of my shoe speaks for itself. I’m not completely complaining: it could be colder. And there’s something melancholy about a day like today that I kind of like. I’m also not complaining because misery loves company, and today I just have to say something about my miserable company! Wait, I said that wrong…

Sherry has talked about Donald before, and today I want to second everything she said in that post. He was the guy braving the relentless rain with me today in the farmyard, with wet shoes, a failing poncho, and a cheery outlook. It was much appreciated, and I made him take a few extra seconds in the rain to take a picture with me with my waterproof camera! Thanks Donald!

    Erin also has a right to complain a little because she actually did ME a favor by going outside today!! Yep, she was scheduled to be in the dry building all day while I was supposed to be in the farmyard. However, I've been trying to fight off sickness this week (possibly what Sherry has), so Erin was nice enough to go outside for me while I got the plessure of staying high and dry. You're the best Erin!

    Oops, I meant "pleasure". I wish I could just correct the spelling, but I would have to trash the whole comment and re-type it. This works just as well.

    I kind of like that you said plessure. I think it was a Freudian slip because Wednesdays in the building are pretty stressful, so you were really thinking: "I had the pressure of staying in the building" so therefore you combined "pleasure" and "pressure" subconsciously to create "plessure". I'm glad you didn't delete it. I think we've all gained something.
