Hey Babe, Take a Walk on the Wet Side

I had planned to take a walk this evening, maybe into town, but then this rain blew in as we were eating dinner. (It rains at least once a day in Chapel Hill this summer.) 

That made me want to do it even more.

I love to walk in the rain. Here's why.

10. I like when my wife looks at me before I leave and says, “Have you lost your mind?”

9. I like when I come home wet and my wife says, “You’ve lost your mind.”  (I love it when we settle issues.)

8. The rain reminds me of a thousand great rain songs. Like Willie singing Blue Eyes Cryin’ in the Rain, Credence singing Who’ll Stop the Rain, Elvis doing Kentucky Rain and one of my all-time favorites, Eric Clapton.

I love that college kids downtown are asking, "Who's the old guy walking in the rain, playing air guitar and singing Let it Rain?"

7. It’s easier to get a table.

6. Headlights look cool in the rain.

5. Tail lights look even cooler.

4. I love the sound of car tires swishing as they go by.

3. The sidewalks aren’t crowded, so you don't bump into people when they pass.

2. I get to wear my rain hat.

1. Nothing smells better than rain.
