Even their dog spent the whole day lying near them as they worked at their own tasks: writing: submitting to various journals, updating new acceptances and rejections of previously submitted pieces.
Once in a while he looked out the window and watched the rain, which continued non-stop throughout the day. It was an unpleasant rain – cold and bone-chilling damp – the kind of rain that just made you feel “wet”. Of course, he thought, that’s what rain does – literally and figuratively – makes you feel wet, but this rain was even more. He turned away from the window and watched his wife for a minute before joining her again at their work-table.
He never liked the rain, except to watch it during an exciting storm, and today’s wasn’t an enjoyable one to watch.
No, it’s just a rainy Thursday.
A good day to be at home.
