I'm loving the wheels and the rain!

-No, there were no side cars and helmets. And no cats.
I'm in an extremely happy mood now. Guess what? Bike ride again! This time, courtesy sweetheart Vri aka Vrinda. Everybuddy was leaving college phataphat today. Since I wasn't in the mood to go shopping along with my pack, and Vrinda happened to be going along my route, she gives me a lift. She drives way so smooth and fast that I'm loving it!!! I totally lov'd it! So much that I want a bike of my own now. Anyways, great ride, cold chilling winds, rain clouds looming threateningly, me very happy and hoping a lot that this ride would not end. We were slightly on the illegal side cos Vri wasn't wearing a helmet.We reached the bus stop perfectly in sync with the rain drops. My feet had not even so much as touched the ground that it starts raining heavy. Of course Vri couldn't possibly go on in the rain. Apart from the getting-drenched-to-the-bones part, you're partly blinded when u try riding in a downpour. Not a good option when you want to reach home alive. We were to part ways from the town. I had leave for home on a bus. She homeward on her scooter. And since it was raining, I kept her company until the rain had abated. Bought a Nestle Classic and we munched through it, watching the falling drops. Excellent feeling, I swear!

And then, its goodbyes.

PS-On the gloomy side, Ragitha is having a bad time. We think her grandfather is no more. She did get a call from home telling her that her grandpa was grievously ill. Usually such calls come when the person is already dead. Hope its not the case here.

May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you and all your heart might desire. Cute article..... Everyone loves rain...[;)]
