A Break-Up Letter
March 30, 2006

Dearest Rain,

There was a time when I thought I wanted you around all the time. Your moody gray skies were a welcome break from that obnoxiously bright Sun. You gave me reason to wear a cute wool hat, or carry a jaunty umbrella. In fact, there was a time when I seriously considered moving somewhere where I'd get to see more of you. Which is part of the reason it's so hard for me to say this...

I think we need to spend some time apart.

It's not that I don't like having you around, but 23 consecutive days is a little much. I'm not saying that you should never come back, or anything drastic like that. It's just that I need to spend some time with the Sun. Everyone knows that you two don't get along. You can't stand to be in the same place at the same time. And since I'm at a point where I feel like I really need to work on my relationship with the Sun (I think I've figured out a way to cope with his bright personality), you're going to have to find a new haunt for a while. I'm sorry, I know this must be terribly shocking for you, but I really need to do this.

And you never know. After spending a good chunk of time with the Sun, I just might be begging you to come back. But we're not going to be able to find that out unless you GET THE HELL OUT OF DODGE, right?

I knew you'd understand. You're so cool like that, Rain.

See you in a few months,
