Here's That Rainy Day

2011 has been the year of rainy holidays. Granted, we've only had two of them (President's Day and Good Friday), but we aren't setting a positive trend.

Maybe the rain isn't because of the holiday, but because of where we've chosen to eat during our day off. We've been enjoying lunch at the local sushi restaurant. I believe we haven't seen the sun when we've eaten there:
New Year's Eve - Cloudy and damp
When Teresa Visited - We had dinner there, so it was night (no sun).
President's Day - Rainy
After the last Illini Basketball game - Rainy
Good Friday - Rainy

That's it. I think we can't go back there unless it's sunny and warm. That should break the curse of the sushi restaurant.

I captured the rain dripping off the restaurant's awning. And once I converted it to black and white, it reminded me of the song, Here's that Rainy Day, a song I learned in college while singing with an a cappella group.

Here's That Rainy Day

Maybe I should have saved
Those leftover dreams
Funny
But here's that rainy day
Here's that rainy day
They told me about
And I laughed at the thought
That it might turn out this way
Where is that worn out wish
That I threw aside
After it brought my love so near
Funny how love becomes
A cold rainy day
Funny
That rainy day is here
It's funny
How love becomes
A cold rainy day
Funny
That rainy day is here

Take a listen here - Chris Botti on trumpet, followed by Rosa Passos singing the song.
