Unexpected rain in July makes my decision not to wash my car since last year look eerily prescient.

Fruit Pickers

“Look at those guys,” my son says. “They’re all wearing ponchos and it’s not even raining.”

“Well, it was raining,” I say, “and it may rain again. There’s an old saying in the fruit picking business: It’s better to have a poncho and not need it than to need a poncho and not have it. Think about it.”

“Why do I need to think about it?”

“Because it didn’t seem to make much of an impact on you. Want me to say it again?”

“No.”
