A Possible Explanation

I used to LOVE the rain!  Growing up in the desert, it was rare.  Coupled with the addition of huge thunderheads, lightening and sudden downpours, it was the BEST!

Then, I got older and two things happened.

  1.  With age and illnesses came THE arthritis. (It’s a rule, once one reaches their sixties, one is required to put THE in from of the infirmity, i.e. the flu, the AIDS, the arthritis.)
  2. As people in Arizona don’t get rained-upon very often, unlike Midwest, South, and East-Coast people (and pretty much everywhere else!) they are less familiar with the process of driving in the rain.


So, rain isn’t as much fun for me, as it was when I was age eight.

BUT, I’ve developed a theory.

Remember, when it rains, how earthworms surface on sidewalks?


I’m now convinced that those that escape the sidewalks make it to cars, and start driving like maniacs!  Obviously they have less driving experience (with the rarity of precipitation).  And many don’t even have licenses!

THIS explains how there seem to be more idiot drivers during rainy weather, than when it is dry!

  1. You’ve done it! You came up with a new & different theory about the hydrocephalic drivers making life tough for the rest of us. “Earthworms in disguise” … hmm.

  2. When I was working, you wanted it to rain on the morning you were going off shift. (24 on – 48 off)
    By the time you get back to work most of the idiots had already crashed or scared themselves enough to actually figure out that something was different about the road condition.

    I still like the rain even with the nagging arthritis. Trouble now is I have 2 longhaired dogs who think getting soaked and then running in to get dried off is the next best thing to a bowl of food!

  3. LOL, why not… It’s as good as any theory!
