Middle of the Night Shower

It is 1:15am. I hear Jake coming up the stairs. He had fallen asleep on the couch and I in the bed. As I'm drifting back off I hear thunder.

Damn!! I asked him twice to bring in the four wheeler, I bet it's still outside.

I jump out of bed, run down the stairs and onto the back porch. The rain is REALLY coming down. Adjust contacts, ADJUST!! Yup, there it is, out in the rain.

I open the door and almost turn back. The gutter must be clogged because in front of the door is a wall of water. I step out, I am wet, like just got out of the shower wet. No turning back now.

I run down the sidewalk into the yard, grab up the miniature 4 wheeler that my son loves so much and head back in under the waterfall thereby assuring that there is not a dry spot on my body.

I head into the bathroom, strip down to my undies and grab a towel. I head up stairs and turn on the closet light in an effort to find something new to wear back to bed.

1:28 I climb back into bed.

"Next time.... Please. Bring. In. The. 4. Wheeler.... !!" (Said through clenched teeth)

"Did you go out and get it? I didn't even know you were gone."

Grrr.....
