5 Things That Always Seem to Happen on Rainy Days





Inspired by a rainy March Monday morning, I decided to write my first normal blog post in a long time. I've been bogged down a lot lately by blogging to-do's and writing pursuits (which are going well!) and regular day-to-day blogging has taken a minor backseat. Until today!

So there are certain things that always tend to happen on a rainy day and a couple that have happened very recently. It's something about dreary days like today that bring out the bad crummy luck.

1) You miss your bus.

This happened this morning actually. Apparently my attempt at waving down the driver went unnoticed and I had to wait ten minutes for the next one. Sure, not terrible.

But I remember one year when it was in the teens here on a cold winter night my mom and I were trying to catch a bus home. Despite banging on the windows, the driver sped off, making us wait 30 minutes in really cold weather until we decided to just call a cab.

2) You slip and fall (into mud or dog poop).

Yes, ladies and gentleman. Two weeks ago, I missed the last step going down stairs outside of my apartment complex. This caused me to careen forward and fall right into dog poop a neighbor didn't pick up.

3) Your umbrella flips out.

This is a huge reason I don't like umbrellas and don't take them with me usually. I feel like such a dork when wind and rain pick up and the umbrella is flipping inside out.

4) You didn't wear warm enough shoes.

Sneakers aren't good rain wear. Neither are UGG boots actually. I think I need to invest in some decent looking rain boots because so far everything I wear in this weather isn't warm enough.

5) You have to use the bathroom. Really bad.

Isn't this always the case? Although I have no memorable stories behind this one, once I heard from this lady who said she was sitting at a bus stop and it started to rain really bad. She didn't have any coat or umbrella and had to use the bathroom too. With the bus not showing up, and the rain continuing she just decided to cry and wet her pants. Sometimes you just have to lean into the experience all the way.

But there are upsides to a rainy day, and despite the dreary commute, I do actually like rainy days. So to end this post on a high note, here is one of my favorite rainy day songs:

  5. Rainy days are my favorite. I'm nearly 30 but I still get a kick out of jumping in puddles, it's all fun and games until you jump in an oil slick puddle and get water in your mouth. Eww.

  10. I love that song! And another thing that always happens on rainy days: it starts to let up a little...until you get to where you're going, then it pours!! And you have to park on the far side of the parking lot, lol.

  14. I hate getting my shoes/socks/feet wet when it rains! Also, I forget my umbrella in the car all of the time. In Florida we get showers every afternoon during the summer, and you would think I would remember to have my umbrella for when it rains as I am leaving work.

  18. That bus stop story was very sad. I hate to think someone felt that hopeless.

  19. Hahaha! It's so true!! I have a pretty long walk from my car to my office. Last week, it was pouring outside. My umbrella would not stop flipping inside out! I was soaked by the time I got inside the building!!
