40 Day Fast Day Sixteen: Sleeping in the Rain

Not much to say today. I am ridiculously tired.

Here's how tired I am. I went to my daughter's track meet today (great job, kid! I'm proud of you!) and it was freezing cold. I was colder than everyone else, of course. It started raining at some point, so I was sitting on the bleachers, cold and mildly wet.

Somehow along the way I ended up with two umbrellas, which completely sealed me off from the outside world. Before I knew it, I was dozing, cold and wet, two umbrellas clutched so that they made a tiny shelter from more rain.

I am pretty sure that's the first time I've been tired enough to fall asleep in the rain, sitting on a wooden bench.
