Its Raining In Love

Written by: Richard Brautigan | Biography
 | Quotes (1) |
 I don't know what it is,
 but I distrust myself
 when I start to like a girl
 a lot.
It makes me nervous.
I don't say the right things or perhaps I start to examine, evaluate, compute what I am saying.
If I say, "Do you think it's going to rain?" and she says, "I don't know," I start thinking : Does she really like me? In other words I get a little creepy.
A friend of mine once said, "It's twenty times better to be friends with someone than it is to be in love with them.
" I think he's right and besides, it's raining somewhere, programming flowers and keeping snails happy.
That's all taken care of.
BUT if a girl likes me a lot and starts getting real nervous and suddenly begins asking me funny questions and looks sad if I give the wrong answers and she says things like, "Do you think it's going to rain?" and I say, "It beats me," and she says, "Oh," and looks a little sad at the clear blue California sky, I think : Thank God, it's you, baby, this time instead of me.
