What a surprise! Ironically, the rain started just about the time I usually leave my house for work (on Saturdays), but I`ve been arriving early lately — I`m talking 30 to 40 minutes early for shaving and eating breakfast there — but today I decide to eat at home. Being a conscientious driver, the rain would normally have prompted me to leave five or ten minutes early for precautionary reasons. So, just as I calculate that it`s time to leave for work, I discover it`s raining puppies and kittens. It must be a sign that the quintessence in my life are emitting opposing forces.
