There's something wonderful about rainy days when you don't have to drive anywhere. Most people that I know dislike them horribly and think that rainy days are gloomy. Not me. I love so many things about rainy days and I suppose that most of them are sound related. I love the sound of rain -- when it rolls down the rooftop, taps at your window, or drums on your umbrella with that thrilling rat-a-tat-tat. I love the feel of walking outside when you get to wear your wellies or galoshes (both of which are wonderful words that just roll off of your tongue with a thrill) and can slosh your way through puddles. I love the sound of puddle-sloshing, too. I also like the feel of the world when it rains, when things always look so clean and fresh, especially the roads and plants.
Add all of that to the fact that I'm a person that prefers to stay indoors at home anyways, and you have a perfect love for rainy days. Mmmm.... Now I just need some tea and nice music to make it a truly fantastic day.
