Bus Rides in the Rain

I ride the bus a lot. The best days are the slow days with empty buses and rain on the windows. I like the rainy season: I like even the idea of having a season in an indifferently sunny and humid island. The tropics offer their own sorts of beauties, other than snow and ice. Recently the Rebel Shang mused over out neverending deluge.
"It's been raining a lot recently," she said. "More than usual."
"Well, it is the rainy season."
"It is?"
"That would explain a few things."
