Walking in the Rain

Happened just by coincidence. I was coming back from Quaid-E-Azam University after meeting a friend; who it turns out just won the Presidential Gold Medal in recognition of his scouting , when it started raining. Actually raining is an understatement. It was like very heavy downpour. Felt like stone, to be precise. I was still quite far from my house, in the middle of nowhere, and as I got out to hail a taxi, I realized I hadn't walked in the rain for a long time. So I just started walking, while the whole world was running tying to find shelter :) And it was so fun. Never felt so calm since a long time.

After some time, I decided that I better get going, so I got into a cab. And the roads were flooding with water. And the next thing I know, we're stuck on Pir Widhai Road because there is just too much water. The water was coming in from the doors. It was crazy out there. Luckily, the taxi driver was a real cool guy, and we both thought why not have fun instead of complaining. So we drove through the flooded roads cracking jokes. A few places, I really thought we'd get stuck either in the middle of the water or in the mud. An hour later, I made it back home. I thanked the driver, and he said, " Yeah dude...won't ever forget the experience for the rest of our lives, right"? And I just nodded, thinking, sometimes when we choose to have fun, we can get it from the tiniest of experiences. :)
