I should have seen this coming

The house is quiet
I drift off. Sweet extra sleep.
Being bad is good

I hear a rumble
in the distance? Right outside?
a drop of rain falls.

Shower! Throw on clothes!
Run outside! Roll up window!
Too late lazy bones.

I treated myself
to a little extra snooze
now my butt is wet.

I swear that it seems like every time I take a nap or sleep in something happens that makes me regret it. One of these days I'll learn that I'm too old and too overcommitted for napping. Maybe one day.

I live in Belgium and I'm constantly having to open and shut windows. It can be 27°F one minute and pouring rain the next.

LOL! I'm sorry, but that was funny the way you ended it. I'd gladly take a wet butt for extra sleep!

Hahaha, I am the queen of napping, no matter what the consequence. ;)
