hard rain

Did you sleep well last night?

I did.

A baby died of pesticide poisoning, and the best part was just about to come, when the rain slashed down with such vengeance. And we all know what happens next.

Time to retire anyway, it WAS past midnight.

Have you ever been told to not run in the rain lest you get wetter? It seems that it's better to walk at a normal pace than to make a mad dash when it pours.

Things I learn from the Idiot Box.

Moisture was collected from two sets of clothes - one from someone who ran in the rain, and the other, who walked at a normal pace. And guess which set of clothes contained more moisture?


Running in the rain shortens your exposure to rain water, so obviously you are less wet. Duh.

Your mother probably said you'd get wetter because she didn't want you slipping on the wet roads. Go figure!

And you thought (for once) you are smart, telling your friends or colleagues, "Oi, don't run leh! Run liow can get wetter oneee!"

Anyways, did you sleep well last night?

I did. And with such warmth and comfort.

The rain washed it all away. Everything that was bad, everything that was old, everything that was disturbing.

A brand new start to 26.
