Caught in the rain
I am very dilligent with my weather checking. First thing after I wake up – grab my phone and dial up the weather channel’s daily forecast. I don’t have any rain gear other than a waterproof jacket, so if there’s even an inkling of rain I walk to work. It gives me a chance to wear my pencil skirts.
This morning I noticed a chance of rain in the afternoon. It was around 30% for most of my work day, so not too horrid. Regardless, I would normally have walked, but I had a lunch meeting across town so I had to risk it and ride.
I noticed the rain while I was in the middle of enjoying my vegetable panini from Urban Standard (yum). I rudely interruped my lunchmate in the mist of his sentence with an exclamation of shagrin. Alas there was nothing to be done; I slowly bundled myself up to go out and face the precipitation.
I got a camera for Christmas, woohoo!
By the way, I wore a dress today. I forgot to wipe off the seat. That was shocking.
You know, I really actually love riding in the rain. It’s incredibly exhilerating. I just wished that I wasn’t wearing suede shoes. And a dress.
