You truly know you are from a tropical country when a tropical storm* happens, with some flooding, and everybody FREAKS OUT!
My neighbors called the landlord to "fix" things (the flood?) and I couldn't help but think:
When it is cold like it's the ninth circle of hell people just go on with their lives like it's nobody's business, but rain is just out of the comfort zone?
Seriously, this one time in January I went outside in flip flops (ok, not clever) and guess what? One of my toes got frostbitten. A good toe.
Today, I biked to the gym. Under the rain. You know why? Because rain respects my toes, that's why.
*at home it would just be called storm, btw.
