Because It’s Been Raining

It was raining when I got out of the bus station. I opened my umbrella and started to walk through the crowd.

Within seconds I noticed that there was something wrong.

No one else was carrying an umbrella.

No one else was walking in the same direction I was.

No one else was talking, or smiling. Everyone had the same expression on their face, very serious.

I struggled against the crowd, until I saw a taxi sitting by the curb. The driver was gesturing wildly at me, trying to get my attention. I walked to the car and got in.

We drove for awhile and finally the driver said,

‘Well, when I saw a man on the empty street, walking like he was fighting a crowd, I figured it was time to pick you up.’
