Never stop dancing in the rain with friends!

Ever since the very first time there was a downpour of rain when my best friend and I were together we have had a tradition of dancing and playing in the rain. We were 11 the first time, and now we're 25 and we've never stopped! Our favorite thing to do is find a big clean puddle during a downpour and stand at each end of it and see who can kick the most water up and out of the puddle at the other person. We get completely drenched! It's a really great stress reliever (not to mention Work Out) now that we're older actually. It's like no matter how many problems we have... as long as we still have the strength to play in the rain everything will be okay. We even joke around that when we're really old and in wheelchairs we'll STILL find a way to play in the rain. LOL!

That's absolutely wonderful that you and your best friend are still best friends! And it's great to hear you much you are still children at heart. You didn't let the world take you and turn you into one of those sour, grouchy adults who never has any fun. =] I love playing in the rain, and where I live it rains all the time. Rain is my favorite type of weather actually.

That is so GREAT that you said WD40 because that's actually what we say we'll have to have in bulk quantities for rainy days when we're in wheelchairs!! I ALMOST added that in my original post, but thought it might sound too redneck haha! I'm glad you said it!

I also feel feel this strange kind of relaxation after a hard rain.I don't usually have the opportinity to stop and dance as most of my friends hate it.The feeling however of a cold spring rain or one in the summer is the thing which brings me the greatest delight.

How refreshing! Yes, playing in the rain is surely one of the greatest stress busters of all time. No matter how old you get, it's something you can continue to enjoy. When the dancing is done in the rain, the dance has no rules. When the games are played in the rain, the only rule is to have as much fun as poossible. I do that too, and for a few moments, you don't have to be the responsible, mature, alert professional person that you normally are. You are just a carefree soul having fun :)
