Philosophers state that you learn from your mistakes. Charlie Brown stated that if you learn from your mistakes, that makes me the most perfect person in the world. I can’t be too far behind Charlie Brown.
Last week (Tuesday, 19th May 2009) I walked in the rain without a rain jacket – both to and from work. Obviously wet when I got home, ironically I had to have another shower. The following day, I didn’t learn my lesson, I did it again. This time, I did it with some variation. I did manage to wear a rain jacket, but it wasn’t strong enough to keep the rain off me as the rain seemed to seep through the zip. To emphasize further that I wasn’t going to be dry, when I sought cover, I sought it under the perforation of tree branches out of some stupid habit I acquired. Habitually, I had another shower when I got home.
On Thursday, 21st May 2009, I managed to avoid the rain completely, despite my walks. I was quite pleased with my… err… ‘achievement’. Although, in the evening I had to take the clothes in, and yes, I got wet again. In ten bloody seconds I was drowned. I guess water is in my blood. Literally.
