I come to you now from being the most drenched that I’ve been in I don’t know how long. OOOHHH! I remember when I was last this drenched! It was on the Galveston Choir Tour. Or should I say infamous the Galveston Choir Tour. I seem to recall some semi-embarrasing things that came out of that trip. Anyhoo, a guy/co-worker/friend needed a jumpstart for his car and was asking who had jumper cables. Which of course I always have. So, I offered to jump him off. As we started to the parking lot, he mentioned something about needing a raincoat as it was raining. Now I don’t really follow the weather as well as I probably should, but I didn’t know anything about the possibility of rain, and since I had neither an umbrella, a poncho, slicker, etc. it didn’t really matter. There were some big drops coming down by this point, but not too many of them. And then the torrent started. You know that point when you just decide that getting absolutely drenched is absolutely a non-issue? Don’t you love that feeling? When you just let go and say, as long as nothing gets ruined, it’s just water, right? I take a shower everyday and that hasn’t killed me yet… So, I left my cell phone inside work for safe keeping, took out my wallet, and took off my shoes in the car. Long story shorter, we got him on his way and I was soaking wet. I came back inside for a bit to grab my stuff and then head home, which is where I sit now. As all of you I’m sure are wondering, I did not in fact take my shirt off. Well, at least not until I got home. Sorry to disappoint. ;) Good times.

    there’s a background image on a computer at wesley of a certain picture of a certain thomas missing a certain shirt and wearing a certain towel with a certain drew peeking in the window. i believe it’s from a certain ski trip. wow, that was weird. the sentence and the picture.

    but hey, i got drenched too a week or two ago in NY. i was at a park by the lake talking (bc i only get cell reception when i can see the water for some reason) and it started to sprinkle. i was on the phone and didn’t want to leave yet, so i scooted under a tree to wait it out. the tree actually did an amazing job catching the water, i hardly got anything. i was waiting for it to blow over a bit and it didn’t so by the time i decided to make a run for it it was torrential. so i got soaking wet too. but it was kinda fun to do that again, it’s been awhile for me too.
