Rain: A Magpie Tale
I remember the year I became best friends with the rain.
It was 7th grade so that would make me..... 12 years old.
It was a crappy year, 7th grade.
I was then, as I am now, the fattest girl in the class.
And the worst of the worst of terrible terrors happened that year
Dressing out for PE
And.... the unspeakable horror.... showers....
I had no escape
Until the clouds came and the rain settled in and offered respite from the pain
Rain gave me safety and comfort
I survived the terrors and the horrors of growing up
And the rain still is my friend
I know it is supposed to be dismal and melancholy
But not to me....
