A Week Of Non-Aqueous Rain

Dear Diary,

…… You know what? I hate starting every entry with Dear Diary. It makes me sound like I should be wearing a hoop skirt or a poodle skirt or a bustle skirt. It sure doesn’t sound a thing like me.

Well, anyway. I figure out how to start my next entry later. I have bigger news to talk about than “Dear Diary” dramas. This whole week we’ve been having nothing but non-aqueous rain. Hahahhaa! Isn’t that a great phrase? I thought so. Non-aqueous rain. Sounds like dirt should be falling from the sky or something. Rocks maybe.

Sooooo, what does it really mean? Ehh, means rain that isn’t real rain. I’ve kept a whole list of all the non-aqueous stuff falling out of the sky. give me a minute and I’ll find it.

…………………………………………………………….   ………………………………………………….   …………………………

found it!

Okay! So, here’s the list of weirdness we’ve been getting instead of rain:

Sunday – beef bouillon cubes. Some were all wrapped up in gold foil. Others were not wrapped at all

Monday – hedge clippers. Nothing special about them. Just…hedge clippers.

Tuesday – ping pong balls. That was a good one. Do you have any idea how hard it is to clean up that many ping pong balls? Here’s a clue – plenty hard.

Wednesday – boxes of Godiva chocolate. Now, everyone got all excited about that. No one minded cleaning up that mess.

Thursday – Bon Jovi cds. Some were in their plastic covers. Others weren’t. I really want to know how those got up into the sky. I really do.

Friday – buckets of milk. Literally buckets filled with milk. Well. I guess they weren’t too filled. Especially when they hit the ground. The colony of feral cats living in town loved that one. No one else did.

Saturday – boxes of computer cords. That was a disappointment. After everything else that had come down, I was hoping for something like….I don’t know. Hershey’s chocolate, at least.

So, here we are at Sunday. And the sky is looking overcast.

Who knows what will come falling down this time?

Talk to you later. Or…I don’t know. Write in you later.

Sally.
