Rain and Water

You might think, upon reading the title of this post, that rain and water always go together. Well, I’m here to tell you that, as matter of fact, they usually do. I’ve never experienced acid rain*, or any other type of non-watery rain. All I know is that it rained today, and there was water involved.

* I suspect acid rain isn’t really acid in the way that I usually think of acid. What first comes to my mind when I think of acid? Stomach acid. Why? Because it happens to be inside of me. Not that I always think of myself and my stomach first. Really. The first thing on my mind when I wake up is usually myself; how tired I am, etc. Just the other day, though, I thought of my computer instead**.

The second thing that comes to mind when I think of acid is a car battery. Those are the only two things I thought of before reading the wikipedia article about acid rain. So now I’m thinking of other things, like brook trout and a girl named Brooke I knew in elementary school (no, she doesn’t have a wikipedia page***, but the page about brook trout had a link to a Brooke Trout, who apparently sings or something and the word ‘Brooke’ made me think of the Brooke I knew a long time ago). Why? Because that’s how wikipedia works. You read one thing, but then you click on a link and the next thing you know you’re learning about popular sovereignty.

In case you were curious, it took 41 clicks to get to popular sovereignty from acid rain.

So, I like rain. Unless it’s acid rain, but since I’ve never experienced any such thing, I think it’s safe to say “I like rain” without any further qualifying statements, except when deemed necessary by any extraneous circumstances which may or may not matter.
