87. The Rainz-A-Pain

How much rain could a rain cloud rain if a rain cloud could rain rain?  Like they say, it’d probably be raining cats and dogs.

In case, you have trouble understanding Chloe’s avatar-speak, here’s the script of her message spelled out in plain English:

This is Octo Woman’s avatar Chloe.  In case you noticed that your computer screen is snowing, we wanted to explain.  Yes, the snow we had in Seattle last week has melted. Our normal weather has returned.   Octo Woman put the snow on your screen to encourage Santa to pay a visit to our house.  Santa doesn’t like the rain.  Today’s forecast: Is for rain followed by showers.  Tomorrow’s forecast is for showers followed by rain. You will not need sunglasses.  One winter evening we were having a big Seattle thunderstorm.  Daughter Gretchen was tucking 5 year old Bryce in to bed.She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, “Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?” Gretchen smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. “I can not, dear,” she said. “I have to sleep in Daddy’s room.”A long silence was broken at last by a shaken little voice saying, “Oh. The big sissy.”

      Tim, instead of ROFLOL PMP, you should ROTFLWTIMY. You’re too old for PMP (or maybe too young). During your little urchin years, that’s what Joan needed all the diapers for.

    Is this true and why have I never heard this story!?!?!?

      It was a secret. You said you wanted your grandmother’s secrets revealed, remember? But sometimes she makes stuff up. She can’t help having an over-active imagination.
