Mysteries of life / My biggest secret

Mystery:
When it´s rainy, all the cars get stuck in traffic.
When it´s sunny, it´s overly crowded everywhere: bars / cafés, parks, squares, etc. (Don´t all those people have to be at work or in school...?)

Secret:
Have you ever heard of the Indian Rain Dance? It´s a dancing ceremony, performed by Native American Indians, asking their Gods or Spirits to send rain.

I have the power to summon rain as well, just like the Indians. The only difference is:
- it has to be in a rainy period (of course, I can´t summon rain in the middle of a sunny day)
- I only have to show up outside. There´s no dancing involved.

The Rain Man
During a rainy period, when I am going outside, it starts to rain. Whenever I go either inside or when I take my umbrella with me, it stops. As for the umbrellas I take with me, they all work like a magic-stick / rain preventing stick. They can make the rain go away.

It started when I was in High School. It probably had something to do with the fact that my then favorite Basketball player was Shawn Kemp. They call him ´The Reign Man´. I wanted to be just like him. And now I sorta am...because I am ´The Rain Man´.


- An extremely rare view when I´m holding my magic stick (that sounded quite dirty...) on a rainy day -

Oh, ik heb stiekem echt hardop moeten lachen.
Vooral bij "I only have to show up outside. There´s no dancing involved."
Tip: zoek de kleinste paraplu ooit and carry it always.

It's weird sometimes I walk around Brooklyn on a Monday at like 2 in the afternoon and I am like, 'do any of you have jobs?' I can admit I have done a rain dance or two.

hihihi! leuk geschreven en heel erg herkenbaar! hoe vaak fiets ik niet totaal verzopen mijn straat in en dan vlak voor mijn huis valt de laatste druppel (in mijn oog)... en dat terwijl ik iedere ochtend op mijn yogamatje de zonnegroet doe! :-)
