I Saw You: Rain Ready

In Music

It was a beautiful warm afternoon, and you were a tall man crossing State Street in Los Altos. As I was two cars back, I could only see your face, which had a very peculiar, almost sheepish expression. Then as you reached the curb, I saw that you were holding the hand of your preschool son, who had a very proud expression as he was wearing an obviously brand-new yellow raincoat and rain hat. I still smile when I think of the discussion you two must have had before leaving your house with him wearing a raincoat on a beautiful sunny day. And I am glad you gave in.
