Life Skills you forget after living in drought conditions
for four years. Specifically - that you shouldn't stand too
close to the curb when it's raining.
that after the first car goes past and saturates you, you
should move back, not stand there like a stunned mullet staring
down at your now saturated skirt whilst a second car comes
past and gives you another soaking.
that when you do come to your senses and bolt across the road
before the third car gets you, you should jump OVER the 3
inch deep gutter full of water, not jump IN to it.
that there is truly nothing like the smell of wet wool.
