Remember When: Rainy Days

Phoenix has had a lot of rain the last few days.
Yes, we need it and I love it but I don't like being out in it.
I feel like one of these.
As we were driving in near blind conditions on Loop 101 on Saturday I kept thinking of the following little poem:

Rain, rain go away.
Come again another day.

Then suddenly, as memories do this jingle came to mind:

I'm going to wash that man right out of  my hair,
I'm going to wash that man right out of my hair,
and send him on his way.

Hearing that as a child I always pictured a little man swirling around in the bottom of the bathtub and then suddenly going down the drain.

Perhaps he could use a duck.

What rainy day memories do you have?

Memoir prompts:
Write about something that was left behind.
What jingles do you remember from your childhood?
When was the last time you went to a park and fed the ducks?
What book are you reading now?
Did you ever take ballet or tap dancing lessons?
What is your favorite soup?
Do you prefer coffee or tea?
