Happy When It Rains

I love it when it’s raining. There’s something
so romantic about the first drops when you’re walking along; something intense and important about driving through puddles with the windscreen wipers on full on a dark winter morning; something life-affirming and routine-kicking about dashing between shop doorways on a working day lunch hour.

Jo Brand, I think, said  she liked walking in the rain because it deterred the psychos and murderers.  And Travis from Taxi Driver famously yearned for a downpour to wash the scum off the streets – indeed, Sunday morning trudging down London’s Hanway Street to work was definitely made bearable by an overnight rainstorm.  Although I’m careful of aligning myself too much with Bobby D – I think Jo Brand’s motives are probably less murderous.
