Precious tells me that it's clouding up outside. She's telling me, because there are clothes on the line. I tell her that it was cloudy when I put the clothes out there.
It won't rain on them. I hope.
Then, much to my surprise, given that she's already expressed belief that it might rain, she says, "I'm going for a bike ride."
What I hear is that, in spite of the clouds, she's headed outside to ride her bike up and down our road. I'm a little concerned, because the neighbors are having some work done on their house, and there's a lot of vehicular traffic over there today. We live on a fairly narrow road - barely wide enough for two cars.
What she really meant when she said, "I'm going for a bike ride," was vastly different ... and safer ... and if it does rain, a much drier bike riding experience.
