I kissed the rain and I liked it

Postby PaddyPop » Mon Jul 13, 2009 4:58 pm

Perhaps it's time to open up an agony aunt section on this forum but anyway here goes...

Last night it rained.
And I was happy. :shock:

I actually went out and stood in it for a while.
It didn't rain for long, but it did rain for a few minutes and whilst it did I enjoyed it.

Yes it's been up to 34 degrees last week and I've been sleeping on the cold tiles for the past week and you can say I was just happy to cool down but seriously, I've spent almost my entire life complaining about the rain whilst surrounded by other people complaining about the rain.

This is a totally new sensation for me, taking enjoyment from rain, it feels well, wrong as though I somehow was involved in deviant behavior. I feel strange and, to be honest, slightly scared and guilty. Am I the only one who feels this way or are there other precipitation fetishists on this board?

I first experienced this on Tenerife. However, right now, some 30 miles south of Manchester, it's p;ss;ng down and I have absolutely NO desire to get wet!

Hi John. Do you like rain?
This Cretan Adventure thing is way beyond a joke.

You could have got wet in Palaiochora a couple of weeks ago.

It is not till you live in a country where it never (well, rarely) rains between May and September and where it can be 34degC for days on end, that you appreciate how lovely it is to step out under the first shower!!!

I still prefer that to be October or later. Rain is meant for winter.
