walking in the rain – journal post

The other day we went walking in the rain. I usually don’t do this, but it was nice out too. Kids need to do this sometimes, even if I’m terrified that she’ll get sick. It was suppose to be a short 3 block walk. We usually go for French fries at the local submarine place. However, i forgot their hours changed and it was closed. Of course, we still needed French fries since I said it. So we walked another 4 blocks to Wendy’s. I’m not sure if it was a good walk or not, and I’m not sure if she enjoyed it.

First, I swear how do parents get their kids to walk with them. You ever see them. They’re walking, talking on the phone, or not paying attention. Their kid is right beside them nice and calm. Not my kid. This one didn’t know if she wanted to be Slowpoke Rodríguez or Speedy, I swear. The Slowloke part is why I’m not sure if she really wanted to go walking in the rain. Thougj, the Speedy part seemed fun for her, even if it scares the hell out of me.

Still, since it was only her and me she behaved fairly well. No trying to run off in the middle of the street for a bird, and very little whining. So, all in all it was decent afternoon.
