The Daily Prompt today:

Safe inside, toasty warm, while water pitter-patters on the roof… describe your perfect, rainy afternoon.

My perfect rainy afternoon – first of all, I would be safe inside. It would be a warm, summer afternoon, and the raindrops would be big and fat, but not a lot of wind, so they’d be falling straight down. I would go outside and pretend I was a little kid. Running around in the rain, jumping in puddles, playing the in mud.

Then, when the sun starts going down, I would head inside, clean up, dry off, change into pajamas, and snuggle with my wife as we watch the lightning dance across the sky to thunderous applause.

10 thoughts on “daily prompt: singing in the rain – without the singing

  1. As I read your post I was carried away, picturing a child telling a rainy day story, lost in an exciting story and enjoying it. Then you said “wife” and the fantasy fog lifted and the reality of it kicked in, he’s an adult enjoying the boyish side of himself, and that is great because life as a bill paying, child bearing, teen raising adult and not to mention gas prices is enough to make all of us adults wish we were that child carefree running, and playing in the rain. I love your post
