Why is this hoser so happy about the rain?
Today’s light rain seemed to inordinately please a hose caddy that I saw sitting outside of a home on Oak Street this afternoon. It certainly appeared to be grinning as it sat there getting wet, with its back to the house, holding its spray wand.
What’s it so happy about? I wondered. Wasn’t the rain putting it out of work?
Perhaps it was, I thought and perhaps it was dirty work that it didn’t want to do.
Who knows — just since July 20th, when the Stage 3 watering restrictions came into effect — how many prohibited, late-night, lawn waterings this poor hose caddy had been roped into by its homeowner?
If inanimate objects can have a guilty conscience then the smile that I imagined I saw may have been one of relief. Click the image to enlarge it.
