Rainy and gloomy

It's been raining all morning, and Theresa got on the bus in the rain. It wasn't raining when we walked to the road, but as soon as we got out there it began to rain harder and colder. I had a small coat on her to keep the rain off and dug one out of her bag to hold over my head. I have to buy myself a rain coat, and a new umbrella since the last one broke. It's starting to thunder now, and it's getting louder. I can't believe that we have therapy this afternoon.

I feel awful after standing out in the rain this morning. I'm tired as can be and I think I'm getting sick from standing out in the rain, I hope that Theresa doesn't. As a result of the rain I'm trying to write an article on things that can be done indoors to keep kids from being bored when it's raining outside. So far it's going very slowly. I can't manage to finish this article with my mind wandering so I'm going to go back and forth between them to see what I can find to write about.

Any subject ideas? I'm at a loss for words.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
