Last night the Philharmonic Orchestra performed in the park pavillion. I had my hopes up for a nice, clear evening with twinkling lights, lightning bugs, and ice cream cones. But I got something even better: an orchestra that played in the rain. The instruments and performers were covered, but the audience sat on wet seats with umbrellas overhead.
I happen to spy something really amusing. Near the front was a little kid who was apparently really thirsty because she was drinking the rain right off the umbrella. She'd lick the sides and then sip from the stream of water coming off the pointy parts. She had no raincoat on and didn't care that she was getting completely soaked. She was just smiling and giggling, drinking her rain.
On the way back to the car, I smiled to myself and stuck out my tongue for a little sip.
