Walking in the Rain

Walking in the Rain

How I love walking in the rain! Nothing gives me more pleasure than kicking off my shoes and splashing barefoot in the muddy rainwater. As I descended the steps of the bus, I saw dark clouds in the sky. It looked as though it would rain. The whole of nature seems to share my feelings. I walked briskly toward home which was a good kilometer away. My mother had warned me about getting caught in the rain. I might catch a cold or something. I wondered if I could get home before it rained. With a clap of thunder and a flash of lightning, the rain came pelting down. As if in reply to my thought the rain came down. I wanted to run for it but my heavy schoolbag discouraged me from doing so. So I walked on. Soon it was raining cats and dogs. Everyone and everything looked revived.

Drenching in rain is enjoyable. The sound of falling rain is pleasing to the ears. In a short while, I was drenched from head to toes. It was refreshing to go out in the cool air. Instead of feeling miserable I was actually enjoying it. The feeling of cool water running down my wet body was quite pleasant. The wind blustered and the rain pattered on my umbrella and the way seemed twice as long as usual.

Finally, I reached home. I came back thoroughly drenched but very happy. The streets were full of water. My mother was shocked to see me soaking wet. I was pretty wet. She hurried me to the hot shower after which I put on clean dry clothes. She was worried that I might get sick.

Well, I did not. In fact, I felt great, having had such a wonderful experience walking in the rain. The raindrops are extremely good for your body.
