I got up late and turned the aircon in the living room on max and sat under a blanket with a cup of hot coffee, wearing my hoodie watching a movie. Guess I was missing the cold of home somehow :)
Even though I'd never had the chance to experience such cold for an extended amount of time personally, I can imagine that.

When you wake up on a Sunday morning, you open the curtains and you see it's a gloomy sky...not long after, rain falls heavily with an occasional thunder.

Turn on the aircon, get some snacks and hot tea in a thermos, close the curtains, turn off the light, snuggle under the covers and turn on the computer and watch a movie/TV series marathon...

Yeah, I think it must be that old myth that wet hair = flu, because I see peeps in the rain with a tiny handkerchief on top of their heads and it appears they're quite ok with this. The rest of them may be getting soaked to the bone, but, hey, at least they won't be getting flu.

I'm fine with rain, but it definitely made me buy a new pair of shoes every time it pour and with my shoe size - it can be a pain to get one. :mad:

I just showered with this morning's downpour out there.

Not pleasant.

I don't know, in years gone by, I found it rather fun frolicking in the rain with a comely lass. :wink:

As a diver, a little water never hurt anybody, unless they were in a plane that just fell out of the sky. That's usually where I came in! :-(

Not when you're dressed for a meeting with your hair done, mascara on etc...

That can be fun as well in the right company. You never ended up fully dressed in a pool at a party? :cool:

But yeah, could put a damper on a meeting! :oops:

I'm very used to that bit too. Back in lifeguard days, one gets thrown fully-clothed into the pool for every excuse imaginable - birthday, graduation, passing lifeguard exam, wedding proposal, not-having-menstrual, end of fasting, etc and the list could go on...

Be thankful that you don't have "winter" here! When I made my first solo flight during my military flight training, on the way back to the barracks the bus always stopped by the big hotel and all who solo'd that day got thrown in the pool (in January!)

My leather shoes!! especially the soft ones. By the time I get out of a pouring rain my shoes are all soggy and if not aired properly, hell they smell! My leather bags too!

I am alright with a light drizzle tho
Life is short hence I live it to its fullest, that is .... I eat and sleep
