A Rainy Day is Like Living on a Different Planet

Today...is a rainy day. I don't just mean it's raining. It does that pretty much every day in Florida. I mean it's overcast, it's dim and everything has that grayish green color.  Now, I'm not one of those people who loves rainy days, but I do find them fascinating.  It's days like these that I feel like I'm living on a different planet or an alternate dimension. Imagine a world where there's only dim light and no sun.  A world where the sky is a different color and it feels as if all happiness has been sucked from you like a dementor. Now imagine a rainy day. Aren't they one and the same? So to me a rainy day is chance to use my imagination and imagine what life in a universe without a sun would be like. It's kind of trippy and it distracts me from the fact that I'm drenched from the rain I've had to endure on the way from my car. But by the end of the day, I'm aching to see the sun again. I do not want to have to live in a world where there is no sun and that makes me oh so grateful to live on the planet and in the dimension that I am.

 So I'll take this rainy day that you're throwing at me today, nature, but I'll be glad to have my sun back tomorrow. And luckily I live in a land where a sunny day is just around the corner.
