Rainy Days and Lock Outs
Ever since I returned from Mexico, I have had a new appreciation of rain. Rain is something that is life-giving and refreshing! Sometimes, Mother Earth just needs a bath once in a while…but today, it got a little out of control! Let me paint the picture for you. It started pouring down right after I got out of my 2pm class in Thaw Hall, towards the back of campus. My residence hall, very rightfully named “Man”ada (like Canada but manlier) is toward the front of campus. Since MC is such a small campus, it usually doesn’t take me more than 5 minutes or so to get back, unless I’m constantly stopping to talk to people; however, today there would be no stopping. It was one of those rains that made the sidewalks feel like you were walking through the creeks of the Smokies! I got back to my residence hall and realized “Nick, you seem to have forgotten your key this morning!” An appropriate ending to a very long day!
