Lynx, Destroyer of Worlds (with Science!)


The rain came down in torrents this morning as I drove to work. The roads flooded as I drove on them, not because the sewers couldn’t handle the volume, but because the water hit the ground faster than it could flow away. I drove through puddle after deepening puddle before I arrived including one low-lying section where the sewers were indeed covered and the water was at least a foot and a half deep. Through it all, every time I drove through the deeper water sending cascades over the hood of my car and pushing a wake high and out to the sides I could almost hear the voice of a young woman yelling “FLUME!!!”

Then by the afternoon it was dry out and the sky was a brilliant blue dotted only by small white clouds that looked as though they’d been dabbed there in acrylic by some painter who’s work was destined for sale at the local mall’s art fair. Pleasantly warm and with the lovely smell that arises after a rain, the late afternoon became perfect for a long nap under an open window, which is what I did. Sadly, Copper did not share in this nap. She came down after I awoke to sit in the window and sniff the fresh air.

As tomorrow is Benny’s last day at work, it is just as well that it rained today. We went to Fuddruckers, after much bickering about an appropriate restaurant, for Benny’s going-away lunch. Rain meant no basketball, so I didn’t have to decide between the two. I’ll miss Benny, he was a beacon of intelligence in the sea of intellectual darkness where I work. There are a few other flickering lights, but they are far too few.

Thought for the moment: I think today would be an appropriate day to listen to Cosby's Noah! routine. I wonder if I can find the album
