The clouds had moved in a bit but we figured we had time for a quick walk after dinner. The sun was starting to go down and it was cooling off a little after a hot desert day.
We walked about a mile up the road, grabbing each other’s ass and playing around while we talked. We turned around to head home since it was starting to get darker.
We had gone about halfway back when, I felt it. “Was that rain?” Snake looked at me and shrugged. “I didn’t feel anything.”
Yup…there was another drop. And, if you have ever been in the desert during a monsoon, it isn’t a light drizzle. The deluge started and we started running for home. There were already huge puddles and cars driving by were not helping at all.
I was dripping and couldn’t see a thing through my hair and I stopped. And started laughing. So hard. Snake came to a dead stop and looked at me like I had lost my mind. I couldn’t stop laughing because we looked like a couple of drowned rats.
My shirt was stuck to me so I just took it off. And tossed it at him. And he started to sing….
“I never knew”Escape by Rupert Holmes
“That you liked Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain
I started laughing harder and said, “Just don’t ask me to make love in the dunes–there are just way too many places for sand to be that I am not OK with.” And I kissed him, rain dripping down over both of us, cars driving by and hooting out the window.
After we made it home, the rest of the wet clothes got peeled off as we made our way to the bathroom, dripping water and sliding on the damp floor. I turn on the water, step into the shower, smirking. “Time to get started on those pina coladas….after we plan the next escape.”
