It's rainin', it's pourin'
I can tell you why it's pouring in Chicago right now. A) I wore my crocs mary-janes today. They are soaked. My feet are soaked. They are drying on the filing cabinet and I have my ugly slippers on. But, the actual reason B) It's May Fest weekend! Last year we had the exact same weather on and off all weekend long. Never fear. Nothing deters people from coming out for beer and brats at the first street festival of the summer! I remember last year's fest, Friday night, major down pours. I was working in the food tent. I was wearing the DANK issued WHITE t-shirt. I noticed that the tent roof was sagging under the weight of the rain water between the posts. The Girl Scout in me sprung in to action. I dashed over to the saggy area and moved everyone out of the way. I pressed up on the sag - and proceeded to dump the water all over myself. In my haste to save the fest-goers, I didn't step in far enough to save myself from the deluge. Everyone stared. "Look! May Fest wet t-shirt contest!" That statement came from my brother-in-law. *shudder* I'm so excited it's May Fest weekend, I don't think I'll be able to sit through these tough 4 hours of work today (GOd Bless summer hours!!) I'm guessing the weekend review is going to be pretty interesting!
