I was so excited I took a picture of it. I took a picture of a cloud. And it's not even a particularly spectacular cloud.
It was literally the first cloud I'd seen since the Mister and I left Amsterdam on September 13.
As we loaded up the car for our daily commute to work, I laughed at myself. I imagined our neighbors coming out to their cars for work and seeing a line of Americans standing in the street, in awe of a cloud and thinking how weird we must be. "Honey, look at the silly white people!"
I didn't think there would be any more fuss about it until I got to school and the first thing a student said to me in the hall was, "Teacher did you see the cloud today?!" My colleagues were all abuzz about it when I got to my classroom: "I know! It's the first cloud since last winter! And it's so big and pretty! Amber! Did you see the cloud this morning!?"
We all were like little kids at the circus! Over A CLOUD! ONE! CLOUD!
The thought struck me as so funny I've been chuckling about it all day. I just thought I would share it with those of you at home in the land of daily clouds.
