“There are many things I do for amusement, but for happiness I like to gather up my memories and go for a walk in the rain.” – Robert Brault
I have four older sisters. One summer in the mid-’80s, they were working for The Daily Herald, Utah County’s newspaper. They had to deliver the paper to people who hadn’t received theirs. One day, they decided to take me with them. We were riding in a Volkswagen Rabbit, I believe.
We had just begun when the rain started coming down heavily. We were just about to descend on a hill when we saw a large puddle spreading through the intersection. It was a one way stop and no one was there. All of us stripped off our shoes and socks and played in the rain. We were drenched!
To this day, it is one of my favorite memories from my teenage years!Published in
