I need a raincoat.

It was a dark and stormy night

It was a dark and story afternoon..

It was just a dark

drizzling Baltimore afternoon.

(Its raining in Baltimore baby, everything else is the same…)

I sat listening to the wind howl outside the window

cars drive by on wet oily pavement, distant sirens and people yell at each other across the street

while I read a horror novel “Christmas Eve on Sesame Street” and tried my best to sing “True Blue Miracle” and think happy Christmas-y thoughts.

Ya’ll.

That

is

an

incredibly

long

book.

Its the entire Christmas Eve on Sesame street special made into a story book which includes the songs…

It was difficult to exude Christmas joy along to 1970’s music when its so wet and dreary out and the world seems to have taken a dark turn.  I know its subjective though, good things are happening too, (somewhere???)  its just difficult to keep them in mind.

I think its appropriate the weather fits more for a noire who-dun-it, or a nice  grey toned Scandinavian thriller than a typical few days before Christmas.
