It seems the sky is falling

I have been living exclusively on the east side of the state since the end of summer 2008.

There is way less rain here than there was at home.

So I am always surprised when it rains, like it is doing outside right now. A lot.

Even more so, though, I am surprised that I am surprised. I grew up in this. I waited in the bus stop. I hunched under the hood of my coat. I scoffed at people with umbrellas.

And now? I’m just another kid from this side of the state who gets scared to go out where it’s wet. Nah, I’ll stay inside, please!
