Singing in the Rain

Coming home from school today was pretty bad. Since it was all nice and warm this morning, I had decided that I didn’t need my hoodie today. Of course, since God seems to have a sense of humour, He obviously decided to send rain today just for that reason. Or maybe not – but anyways, all I had was a nice t-shirt to wear home. And of course, the 4A bus I normally transfer onto had to come early, so I missed it at the mall. I just rode the #2 bus down to Dunsdon St. and got off there, but that’s still about a 10-minute walk in the rain.

As I look back, I suppose it wasn’t too bad. It wasn’t pouring rain, just lightly raining, and it could have been a lot colder than it was (as it was, it was just above the temperature where I would have started shivering). And I’m also glad that I at least saw my bus going by, so I didn’t get off at the mall thinking it hadn’t come yet. Otherwise I’d have to either walk home from the mall in the rain or wait half an hour until the next bus. Neither prospect would particularly appeal to me. So anyways, it wasn’t too bad, just an added unavoidable frustration. Oh well, that’s life I suppose.

I’m not sure what else to talk about right now. I imagine Steph was having a pretty bad day today. Apparently her dad drove away with most of her school stuff in the trunk of the car this morning, so she didn’t have some of her books to study for the Law test, and didn’t have the Huck Finn book to read for the quiz today. Then, of course, is the date she’s obviously been looking forward to with one of the guys that’s obsessed with her. I suppose it’s not really a date, considering I called it that and she almost kicked me. He’s picking her up and taking her to his battle of the bands or something. Sounds like fun when you probably don’t know anyone there. Heh. I had a good laugh over that one; but I suppose since he went with her to youth last night, she could always do the gentlemanly thing and go with him. She’s always been the manly one.

I really hate only having one car in our family. I mean, we got by for years with only one car, but once you get two cars, you can’t go back. Ever since the Escort died on us, we’ve been having to travel together and drop each other off at work and school, etc. I can’t go places if my parents need the car, or else they have to drop me off so they can use it afterwards. It’s really annoying. I can’t wait until my dad buys a new car; he’s looking at getting either a Toyota Corolla or a Honda Civic. I must say that I really wouldn’t mind either one. Right now, as long as it has an engine and four wheels and will get me where I want to go, it’s perfectly fine with me. Well, it’s fine as long as it’s not an Echo. I think I’d probably run my dad over with it if he bought one of those.

That’s all I have to say for today. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s exciting episode: when Jeff attacks! Attacks what, I’m not sure yet, but it surely will be thrilling. Don’t miss the action!
