As I sit here in my car, water dripping from my hair, I can’t help by shake my head.
Sometimes the gods have a sense of humor. Well, some more than others. Today’s post brought to you by Set.
This afternoon, I went to see Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. Now, many people have a problem with the Percy Jackson series – or, rather, with its author, Rick Riordan. I don’t blame them. He’s said some frustrating things regarding Pagans and the gods whom he uses to make money, but I digress. I needed to relax after the rough morning I’d had and The Boyfriend gave me the go-ahead, so I made my way to the theatre. Sea of Monsters got my attendance mostly because Nathan Fillion was in it, along with Anthony Stewart Head, Stanley Tucci, Jake Abel, and Yvette Nicole Brown, all of whom are actors I enjoy and admire for their talents.
But that’s not my point. I’ll talk about that more later.
As I made my way out of the theatre, I stopped and read Brooke‘s coverage of her Wep Ronpet rites at sea. Her words, as always, are beautiful and I enjoyed her return to the blogosphere. And as I looked up to the doors upon finishing her entry, I saw that it was storming outside.
Have I mentioned how much I dislike rain? Especially these days since my shoes need replacing due to worn soles that let the rainwater in. I have been putting of replacing them for months now as I wanted to wear them out fully – if it’s not raining, I am usually fine. In fact, I had mentioned to The Boyfriend that I was going to put off replacing them a little longer earlier today.
Isn’t that always the way?
So I glowered out the doors and putzed around on my phone a little longer before the battery died. And, with nothing else keeping me from heading out and the rain looked like it would not be stopping anytime soon, I made for my car. Not at a run like the lady ahead of me, but with a determined walk that I would suffer the wet clothes and soaked shoes without making a fuss, water dripping from my nose as I approached my car.
Only to have the rain stop the moment I opened my car door.
God of mischief indeed. I look forward to seeing what else you have in store over the next year.
