Blissfully Rainy Day: Adventures of the Working Girl

I almost did not want to go to work today. I kept ignoring my alarm and snuggled deeper and closer to Gianfranco. Ahhh... but the call of the coins clinking in my piggy bank was just so strong that I had to wake up - quarter to 5, mind you! - and took a cold, freezing bath. It might sound crazy, but I love taking a bath especially when its raining.

Dressing in my casual, formal work attire, I rolled up my slacks, donned a long sleeved blouse, and my bulky jacket (courtesy of my aunt in the UK). I had to wear my bulky jacket in anticipation that the air conditioner above my head at the office would not be turned off. Of course, I had already stacked a makeshift blanket in my office box. Instead of wearing my usual 3" heeled work shoes, I opted to wear flat sandals which are totally not allowed at the office. Like I care... It was bloody raining!

I went outside with an umbrella - which does not belong to me because I do not have one. Lo and Behold, what did I see? Puddles of mud up to calf-deep! Our road is currently under construction, so the rain had nowhere to go. I had only one option, and that was to keep on going forward. Going back into the house was definitely not on the list as I had already locked the door and I am up the river without a key. So, I did what any normal working girl would do. I climbed the pile of stones and gravel in an attempt to get across to the other side of the huge mud puddle. But as fate would have it, the stones somewhat loosened and my foot got stuck. Yeahp! Stuck and the rain was still pouring.

Nevertheless, I went ahead and dislodged my foot, wiped it clean and went on. When I safely reached the crossing, no easyride was in sight! In short, for all my adventures, I still got to work late, and soaking wet. :)

Still, I couldn't be happier as pie. Tomorrow.. Well, even though I love rain, please don't let me go through all that AGAIN!

About Me: even when she has fairy wings on, this girl is anything BUT dainty. perhaps the size, the weight, and the personality alone are just too much for her to be considered delicate, prim, proper, and refined. this girl with the mud smudged cheeks has been down on the ground one to many times. these times forced her to be tougher, smarter, and more savvy than she has ever been. perhaps she will always be, never dainty. email me: neverdainty [at] gmail [dot] com
