and the rain continued.....

to pour its lofty countenance down upon the boy's head and face and shoes.....
he had forgotten the umbrella that his mom had,
 in a moment of supremely, motherly judgment,
prepared by the door,
 so as not to be forgotten by her
 sometimes 'scatter brained' son......
lo and behold !
he had forgotten it anyway !!
even though it had fallen when he had opened the door this morning....
it had actually hit their small, white dog on the head !!!
the poor doggy had yelped in shock !!!
and STILL.......
HE HAD FORGOTTEN IT !!!
so here he was.....
outside...
in a rain storm......
with nothing to protect him from the elements......
and he was wearing his new shoes, to boot !
damn !!
damn !!
they were suede.....
mom had also warned him about the shoes,,,,
"DON'T WEAR THEM IN THE RAIN !!"
okay....
he had to think....
how would he get home and dried off without her knowing ???
she would surely be angry at his lapse in decorum and sensibility...
thinking......thinking.....
there was a honk !
he turned around to find mom in the Hummer, patiently waiting for him !!
a look of
"PURE LOVE"
 on her face......
