I had a mini adventure today!

Looks as though the monsoon is finally upon us… much-awaited and much-desired respite from the heat…

When i left home for work in the morning, i forgot to carry an umbrella. But i reached work safely.

But when returning back, i realised i was running short on cash. I decided to withdraw money from the atm to replenish the supply.

When i reached the two atms in the area, i found out that both were in disrepair…

And guess what…?

It was pouring cats and dogs…

No money, no umbrella and i was 20 mins walking distance away from home…

I took shelter outside a nearby store. When it looked like the rain had slowed down a bit, i decided to take the chance and walk the distance. And no sooner did i start walking than it started pouring again…

I was drenched… But i decided to walk on anyway… i was mortified as i was the only one walking in the rain with people staring at me like i was mad for not taking a cab.

But soon it felt liberating…

…and i had taken 2-3 stops outside various stores before i had reached home – soaking wet…

I dont remember the last time i had gotten wet in the rain, let alone done something as daring, no matter how insignificantly so…
