#BucketList2013. #14. Make out with my husband in the rain.✔️.
Sounds mushy? Indeed. Surprisingly I have never kissed in the rain. You see it all the time in the movies and it looks really romantic. My take has always been why would you want to stop in the middle of a down pour to make out when you could simply run for shelter and be inside, DRY and kiss all night long. Well I put it on my bucket list and simply had to wait for it to rain AND be with my husband all at the same time. I was dying to know what all the fuss was about. It really was a challenge, I was either not with Husby and it was pouring or I was with Husby and it was clear as day….so we were on our little romantic getaway (bucket list #16, Woop) and we were walking, holding hands and enjoying the city. All of sudden it starts to rain and I have to say my mind is not on the kissing, however there was something about how content we were in that moment that made us not hurry or try to run for cover. It then hits me, BUCKET LIST!!! I remind Husby about the kiss and he says “can’t rain any harder than this, let’s go” and he kissed me. There it was. We stood getting drenched and making out. People were scattering around us… And I finally got it. Time stood still in that moment. Yes we were getting drenched by the downpour but I see now how it IS romantic to just stop and be and kiss and love in a moment when the instinct is to hurry and run and duck for cover. After the kiss we just looked at each other and laughed and continued to saunter to the car. It was pretty magical. I can’t say it’s my first choice to make out in the rain but …..now, I really get it. 15 down. 10 to go!!!!
