SOTD: Jose Gonzalez, "Storm"
Why it's SOTD:
At about 7:00pm last night the heavens opened up and poured down rain on Washington, DC. I was eating dinner outside at the time. Cool.
About an hour later, as the storm raged on outside, the fire alarm in our building started going off for no apparent reason. About the same time, the basement started flooding. So, my housemate Carrie and I did what any rational people would do. We ignored both problems and went puddle jumping.
I may have contracted the hiv from jumping around in DC puddles.(I think at one point my exact words were, "something sharp is stuck in my shoe, I hope it's not a syringe.") BUT. It was worth it. Most fun I've had in weeks!
In the meantime, our more responsible housemate Kate called the alarm company and swept the water out of the basement. She's not bitter at all.
Why you should love it
Well for one, it was on an episode of Friday Night Lights, which has one of the best soundtracks of any show on TV right now (Let's face it, FNL is the best show on TV right now, but I'll save that for another post).
But it's also just a downright great song. For more rainy day fun, play it with your windows open in a downpour. And then watch Friday Night Lights season one episode 20-- "Mud Bowl." You won't regret it.
