As I’m walking home from the store today in the pouring rain, a white car comes speeding toward me, deviating from its normal path to veer as close to me as it can.
If there were a lot of rain in the gutter, that move would be guaranteed to kick up a wall of water that would drench me to the skin. And presumably they would drive away laughing.
Unfortunately for them, I am at a relatively dry stretch of road, so their attempted prank has no effect.
For once the universe is on MY side. Ha ha, assholes.
