It's Raining Again

Boy, I didn't realize how much I enjoy not being wet until the rains returned. Oh, well, it's the northwest, and exposure is good for me!

Today, I left my flash drive at home. After I realized I could spend 2 hours redoing my work or 1 hour taking the bus home and back to retrieve it, I was treated to a bonus bus trip. In the rain, of course. (By the way, you can tell that the bus in this photo is not in the pacific northwest, where we pride ourselves on not using umbrellas. Why that's a matter of pride is less clear.)

I think public transit is probably second only to public bathrooms in its exposure potential. For someone with fears of colds and flus like me, I think it beats the bathrooms actually. Stuck in that overheated little box with 30 other people, wondering who's going to sit next to me, reminding myself, exposure is good for me!

  1. Yeah, that umbrella threw me for a minute! I lived in the pacific northwest for a few years, and learned quickly that umbrellas were alien contraptions!
