Yes, I know, obvious pun happened there.
But so did the rain.
The weather outside is perfect right now – cool, dry and cloudy. Just the kind of weather, in fact, to sit in the post-shower daylight outside a coffee-shop, sipping a hot cappuccino, blank sheets of paper and a black ink fountain pen at hand, or perhaps a good book or an interesting conversation.
Absolutely not the kind of weather to ride to work in a terminally long traffic-jam, nearly skidding on the mucky road, narrowly missing a truck that has thoughtlessly rammed its brakes too late.
Oh, who am I kidding? My heart’s not in this rant. I’m a sucker for the rains. And with Valentine’s freakin’ Day just two days away too. Dammit.
