A Rainy Day Rant

I was bringing in my groceries in the pouring rain.
My efforts to stay dry were just in vain.
Trip after trip I made, and I got soaking wet.
Then a thought came to mind I wanted to forget.

My ex used to bring in all the groceries from the car.
That was a lifetime ago, a memory from afar.
Now that the thought had crept in my mind,
I became infuriated by his act so kind.

I was thoroughly drenched, and it was all his fault!
That recollection was not worth a grain of salt.
I muttered under my breath in a cathartic rant.
I would not dare repeat, nor would I recant!

I felt much better after I put on dry clothes.
A good rant is good for the soul I suppose.
My ex was forgotten as I enjoyed my day.
The sun came out later, chasing memories away.

The summers here are too hot! But now I don't mind too much. I just locked in my electric bill for a year at $98 per month. I will keep it chilled down and sleep under a blanket :)

It rained today but I couldn't find anyone to rant about, so I just had to be wet and rantless. Nice write, enjoyed it. Beverly

I love this. The ex is getting blasted for doing something good. "No good deed goes unpunished!"
