showers and thunderstorms were going to begin.
"Ah! They'll come in the afternoon, you'll see," we said to each other.
"Oh, won't those people get wet!"
At one o'clock the landlady came in to ask if we weren't going out, as it seemed such a lovely day.
"No, no," we answered, with a knowing chuckle, "not we. We don't mean to get wet - no, no."
And when the afternoon was nearly gone, and still there was no sign of rain,
we tried to cheer [tjia] ourselves up with the idea that it would come down all at once, just as the people had started for home, and they would finally get wet more than ever. But not a drop ever fell, and it finished a great day, and a lovely night after it.
The next morning we read that it was going to be a "warm, fine, fair day; much heat;" and we dressed ourselves in light things, and went out, and, half-an-hour after we had started, it began to rain hard, and a bitterly cold wind began to blow, and both kept on for the whole day. So we came home with colds and rheumatism all over us, and went to bed. The weather is a thing I never can understand.
(after Jerome K. Jerome )
