It rains, it pours, but not on eggs

by Carli Auriti | Score: 2350

It rains, it pours, and it floods out the door. Why do we have no roof? The rain showers us on the couch, soaking the linen. The eggs in the fridge are the only dry lie in this place, sealed through the door. It rains, it pours, but it doesn't flood through that door. Why is he a miserable marketing director? He should've been a roof fixer, then he wouldn't be soaked right now. He 'd rather be soaked at the kitchen table with a bottle of syrup and a plate of hashbrowns covered in salt and cheddar than sitting on the dingy couch
in the living room. It rains, and it pours, but not as heavy at the kitchen table. He can't move there because he has gotten stuck to the couch with his student. Not only is he a miserable marketing director, but he's also an independent teaching assistant and it's his duty to sit with his student until they're done learning all the algebraic formulas that could fit in such a small mind. The truth is he's lonely, and his only real companion is that bottle of syrup. He looks down and notices his student's ban
