Some people would dislike rainy days like the ones currently being experienced by most of the Luzon area here in the Philippines. But that is not me, I prefer rainy days than sunny days. Sunny days are always linked to cheerful days but I associate it with days of pain and itchiness and sweat.
I think part of that preference stems from two facts:
Â Â 1) I am a bonafide introvert (aka lazy).Â I would rather be inside the house than go out. Some might argue that rains bring out the worst traffic in the metropolis but I encounter those on any workday. At least during rainy seasons I dont swelter in the heat.
Â Â 2) Ever since I came from my first assignment to Helsinki, my body thermostat is way off. I guess -22 C can do that to your body. Now I have a high tolerance to cold (to the chagrin of my wife who seems to despise any temperature below 27 C) but a low tolerance to heat and humidity. It was not always this way since during my student years I am the one who goes in the middle of the field when harvest seasons come and I could hold my ground by being baked under the sun the whole day.
Yep, rainy days are not gloomy days for me. Especially if I can stay at home, lazilyÂ lounging in bed, looking at the rain drops splattering atÂ the closed window, and cuddling with my wife.Â I could never ask forÂ anything better…
