Two rainy days

O.K., that's enough. Two days with rain this week and I'm ready for this season to be over. (Well, Wednesday was not even half a day, but today it has not stopped.)

. . .I'm bored. I have the pre-high school-reunion blahs. I've been looking at old yearbooks. Scary. Very scary. I think I've improved with age; for sure my life has.

In Kyoto we got caught in a downpour near the end of a day spent riding from one wondrous site/sight (they're both right) to another and stood inside a doorway waiting for it to quit. This did not stop cyclists who whipped out their clear umbrellas and kept on their way.

On another day I was wandering around a major temple's grounds when it began to rain; the tame deer didn't seem fazed, but they didn't smell very nice, either. Wet dog, only worse.

. . .I don't know if many people I knew will be at this reunion tomorrow. I don't know what "casual dress" means. I don't know how to make small talk at parties. No one else will be there solo. I signed up for this nearly a year ago when I was in a good mood. . . .now, I'm not.

It just quit raining.
