…But the Residents of Venus Get Drenched
By Jeff Salter
It’s rare, but sometimes even the inclement weather will smile upon me.
Today [actually 5-16-2014], among several sets of rain showers, I accomplished three separate functions.
- Drove to the ‘Y’ in bright sunshine. While I was exercising inside, it POURED rain outside.
- Drove from the ‘Y’ to the grocery in moderate sunshine. Another light shower while I was inside shopping.
- Drove from the grocery to my Mom’s cottage in sunshine.
- Drove from my Mom’s to my own house in sunshine.
Then it rained again.
Yep — sometimes even the inclement weather will smile on me.
And at this point, you may be thinking: “So what? He had a few key moments of sunshine on an otherwise rainy and storming day.”
Well, I’ll now explain why this was so unique.
My wife – running different multiple errands, on a different schedule, in her own vehicle – got rained on everywhere she went.
Men are from Mars… Women are from Venus. Sometimes it doesn’t rain on Mars!
If this had happened to you, would you mention your good fortune to your spouse who got soaked at every stop?
