It Rained On My Parade

28 Jun

Today my town was having its annual parade, which is basically a long line of high school bands, veterans, and advertisements for local community colleges. And in the middle of it, after I’d downed the entirety of a large lemonade and was forced to use what I will kindly refer to as a restroom, it started pouring. I spent most of the parade huddled under a picnic blanket with the wonderful Juju, the both of us wondering why we bother attending social events.

On the up side, they did throw candy at us, but we’re now too old to receive the bulk of it, and most of mine was rained on, so I was left with a few soggy Tootsie Rolls and a Laffy Taffy bearing the joke “Why is it so hot in a stadium after a football game?” Because all the fans have left. 

I think I’ll stay home next time.


Think inside the box!
