The proverbial funny thing happened on the way to the market. As I walked down the broad sidewalk, right near the Tom Thumb grocery store, a passing van rolled right into a large puddle gathered along the side of the road. It was just like in a 40s' movie. A cascading wave of water arose from the street, and formed a tsuinami which washed right over me.
How many movies and cartoons have I seen in which a passing car drenched a pedestrian? Dozens, I'd guess. So you'll imagine how I felt part of something large and very cinematic as I continued on my drenched way to lunch.
On the short walk back from lunch, the rain had recommenced, but I didn't have one of those huge movie musical umbrellas, and I don't remember singing.
