The Rain Bonnet

Once upon a time, when I was a teenager, I used to hang out a lot with my brother, aka So. It was really neat cause even if I was in trouble with my parents I could still go places with my favorite person on Earth, my So.

One time in particular myself, my friend Laura and So decided to go out for the evening. The skies were looking a bit threatening but that didn't bother us. We stopped at the local drug store for something, I don't remember what I bought but I do remember as I was walking toward the store So calling out "buy me a rain bonnet!" So I did. One of those old lady ones that fold and stuff.

We decided we wanted to go to the local drive-in to see a movie. We didn't care that as soon as we got there it started raining. So wore his rain bonnet while we all three sat in the car with it on (used an entire tank of gas) having a good ole time with the wipers on the entire time watching the movie. I can't imagine how pissed off the workers must have been because we were literally the only people there and they had to show the entire movie just for us.

I have some pictures of us inside the car having fun he he, but I don't have a scanner so I can't post them. I would love to post the one with So wearing the rain bonnet. Believe me it is priceless.

OMG! I have just the faintest memory of that. I sorta remember that we were the only ones there. And I am sure I don't remember much because the weed must have been really powerful that night! How funny!

Mail me that photo and I will scan it. Also, if you aren't using that Photoshop CD you could send that item, too. I lost my Photoshop program when I got my new computer.

That weed is what I was referring to with the having fun item. I was just careful cause Steph reads my blog.

I'm not using the photoshop cause it won't load on my tower. I don't know what Tom did to it. I also need to send you back the pictures of me and Mark getting ready for Halloween.

What a heart warming story. I was moved to read of that special sibling relationship bonded with memories of carefree days of yore.

Or something.

You and So have a great friendship. I feel the same way toward my brothers, especially my youngest one.

Hope you're having a good weekend. Check out my blog when you get a chance, there's something over there for you:)

Those bonnets are so awful. My mother wore one and I always hated it. Umbrellas are much better. But the photo is priceless.
