Wanna Be There Now
Today I ate lunch in a small cafe and sat at a table looking out the window into an open air mall. As I slurped soup, the rain began again, in earnest. The large drops plopped and the people outside scattered.
It’s been doing this for the last ten days, almost non-stop.
Opening the weather app on my iPhone, it became clear that this rain, rain isn’t going away anytime soon.
Here’s the weather where I am, now:
Drippy, drippy, drippy.
Two ladies chatted loudly behind me. One was complaining about how her daughter is misbehaving and that her acting up is disrupting the whole home.
She said “To be honest, this bad weather has got us all in a bad place.”
With a deep sigh, I took another slurp of broccoli soup.
After sixteen days in jolly yet rainy ol’ England, I get to go home tomorrow.
I am so ready.
So I flipped the pages in my weather app.
Here’s how it is where, if all goes well, I will be tomorrow:
Those little yellow disks, all in a row. That looks really nice.
Plus there is The Good Man at home. And a cranky Feline. And an elderly fish. And my life.
I’ve loved living here for just over two weeks but now it’s time to get back to the business of living my beautiful, wonderful, magical, messed up but all mine life.
