under the rain
Earlier today, I was hanging out with a friend of mine having milk tea at Tea Farm. It was raining and he was feeling negative earlier and my aim was to cheer him up. Unfortunately, by the time afternoon rolled in, he was okay and I was the one feeling a wee bit negative. It ended up with both of us cheering each other and him reminding me that he will beat me to a bloody pulp (okay, I exaggerate haha) if I do not stick to my guns about an upcoming decision that could make a BIG impact on my life.
The rain did not let up and I had to get home to tutor B so we decided to brave it. Thing is, I had a jacket and he didn't. He had an umbrella and I didn't. We ended up with him walking me and waiting with me for over half an hour for a bus that I could get into. It was a crazy mob and it was raining like there was no tomorrow.
While waiting, I was complaining about the rain and the fact that my feet was getting wet (which is a big pet peeve of mine) and he was telling me, "It's just water Kay. Wash it off." Toink. He was so positive it was actually rubbing on me. Imagine this, we ended up singing "Singin' in the Rain" under one teensy weensy umbrella.
Me ... singing in the rain ... me ... who hates it when it rains because my feet would get wet ... was singing.
Seems he is turning out to be such a positive influence in my life. So ... here's to you ... thank YOU ... not just for the burrito a few weeks back but for teaching me that I can make my life more pleasant and happy by choosing for it to be happy and pleasant.
