Rainy ramblings from a waterlogged writer

With rainstorm after rainstorm, it’s hard to make plans to get out and do much, so I might as well stay inside and write about the rain and you might as well stay inside and read about it, right? A popular question around these parts is, “Gettin’ much rain out your way?” However, with as much as we’ve all been getting, I’m betting that would be an unpopular question these days.

The storms come nearly every afternoon, along with uninvited guests like thunder and lightning. The grass is shooting up from the ground like it was on steroids so fast that a herd of goats couldn’t stay ahead of it. You know those walking catfish? It’s a shame that scientists and fish experts (I think they’re called itchy-cologists or something like that) can’t get together and develop walking piranha who eat grass. Now, there’s something that could work, though it’d mean extinction of the lawn mower and unemployment for the hardworking folks trying to stay ahead of the grass.
