On Wednesday, the 16th consecutive day of rain here in Cleveland (new record), (really, it’s been Biblical), I was out walking when I got caught in a downpour. I’d put my backpack on my head and was trudging on, when a car pulled over, its window rolled down, and a tattooed arm extended a very nice umbrella. Peeking inside, I saw a smiling, curly-haired woman.
“Take it!” she said.
“But how will I get it back to you?”
“Just give it to the next person you see caught in the rain!”
I can’t give you an umbrella, dear reader, but here’s the goodwill, passed on with interest. And the forecast for tomorrow is sun all day.
