It’s that time of the year where the rain hangs about the place, like a friendly ghost. If it’s not coming down in delicate droplets, then it’s in buckets; and if neither, it tends to lurk suspiciously in the atmosphere.
No one knows when it is going to shower down and everyone seems to be tired of the games the sun and clouds keep playing.
In Lagos, Nigeria, the streets are a mess and transportation is one hell of an extreme sport not to talk of the annoying hike in the prices.
Regardless of the forlorn looks on the face of almost every Lagosian, the raining season is actually my best time of the year. For all the pluviophiles out there, the ones who love rain, things can’t just be better.
Every time I am out in the rain, it takes a lot of self-control not to dance in the rain and get all dirty. Rain reminds me a lot of my childhood.
And when I am indoors, it’s an awesome time to listen to the drumbeats on the roof and to stick my hands through the window to feel the rain touch my skin.
There are only two types of people in the world; people who feel the rain and others who just get wet.
So what if it’s raining! You are neither salt nor sugar, you won’t melt…. So enjoy it.😌
When life throws you a rainy day, play in the puddles.🌧💛
