Hocks and stones shine and vegetation grows when it rains. But otherwise it is hard to say mudh in favor of rain. Rain makes the day darker. Rivers flood their traf- fic children the dog refuses to go peo- ple steal each other's umbrel- taxis the boss pushes all the buttons on his desk panel so he can bawl cut everybody at and even philosophers sneer and say they knew all along that life is only a snare and a delusion. All this just because it But worst thing about rain from the fact j'ou have to drink your dry Marti- ni indoors if you don't want it to get wet is that it seems to nullify all forms of human creativity. People just don't know what to do with them- selves. TRY SOME OF THESE there are a lot of constructive things you can do. Here is a list of them you might keep handy in case it rains Stay in bed all day. Get sick. There is no better time to be sick then on a rainy day. Do something like calling up all your enemies and giving them hell. If that doesn't get all the poison out of your write a round-robin snotty let- ter to all the credit mana- gers who have been writing you snotty letters simply be- cause you have forgotten to pay a bill for a year or two. Compose a last will and tes- tament in which you disinherit including the fam- ilv nnd IPAVP nil vnnr money to the elm tree In your back yard. Go back and finish that cor- respondence course in ventril- oquism you started when you were 12 years old. Read a copy of War and Peace. Now go back and read it this time with- out skipping three-fourths of the pages. Thumb through your child- hood picture album and con- gratulate yourself on the fact while your hair is thin- at least your ears don't stick out as far as they did the year you got out of high school. If none of these remedies solve your rainy day there is one last resort. Put on your raincost and slosh out of the house into the and look for a rain- bow.
