Six Things the Rain Has Taught Me

  1. Five dollars is not too much too pay for a streetcorner umbrella outside Penn Station.
  2. Thirty seconds is about half a minute too long to wait before realizing (1).
  3. Thirty-sixth Street and Seventh Avenue is a flood plain where water washes freely over storm drains and up onto the sidewalk without the slightest ripple.
  4. Forty-first Street and Broadway is even worse. As above, but three or four inches deep.
  5. Some puddles are too broad to jump without a good running start.
  6. Getting spashed by a car makes very little difference.


I love this entry. You paint quite a picture with that list. You sure have my sympathies. What a drag (or slosh maybe?).
