I’m All Wet


I got totally drenched on my way out today. I was waiting for a bus and forgot to check for standing water by the curb. I saw the bus was coming so I stood near the curb, but a car came screaming by before the bus got there, zoomed right through a puddle and splashed me. The water washed over me like a wave. If I’d been carrying a surfboard, I could have hanged ten in the tube.

I had to walk home, change my clothes and try again.

If you have to walk around in this stormy weather remember to look out for curb-puddles.

And now a haiku:

Rainy day bus stop.
Victim of drive-by splashing.
Socks are like a sponge.
