The Perfect Day
Do you remember the day we finished the French drain in the backyard by the pool? You did most of the work digging the trench that first June of our married life. With a large rainstorm looming, we had to finish the project to see if the drain worked. So, we decided that day was the day to get it done.
And so, we did. That day was like many June days. It was cloudy, humid, and windy. The radar showed the heavy rain was coming in, so we rushed to get the trench filled and smoothed over before the deluge hit us.
So, there we both were: me in my swimsuit and you in your light green bikini, looking sexy indeed. As we shoveled the dirt, we both got covered with mud from head to toe. But that was part of the fun, you see—working together to finish that important task under the threat of more rain to come.
Then, it started raining on us. We had a couple of beers and kept moving dirt as the rain fell. We finally got the ditch filled when the bottom fell out of the grey sky, and a long downpour was upon us and the earth.
But the pouring rain was a good thing. It cooled us off and also washed off all of the mud, grass, and sweat. Do you remember standing up in the rain as if it were a shower, laughing at that as we chugged on some beer? Since there was no lightning about, we just enjoyed being out in the cooling rain, getting clean and a little drunk at the same time.
We were out there awhile, and then the rain let up; and we went back inside and took a real shower. The rest of the day we relaxed, satisfied that the drain was diverting the water and working well. We were happy about taking a shower outside in the rain with a cold beer in our hands to wash away the dirt covering us both.
Certainly, that day was a perfect day. We did something as a couple and really enjoyed it from start to finish. A day filled with work was also filled with fun and love together in the pouring rain on a warm summer day in June in the backyard by the pool.
