Lemon Drops

If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gumdrops, wouldn’t they end up taking someone’s eye out? I mean have you seen the speeds a gumdrop can reach in freefall? And don’t even ask about the lemon drops.

Now if all the raindrops were cow flops and pig slop, then…well, it wouldn’t be much better. In fact, it would likely be worse. But I would laugh at the people outside. And that makes it all worth it.

    Now granted case 2 has obvious comical implications, but imagine you were sitting indoors and watching people being absolutely pelted with high-speed gumdrops coming in at an almost horizontal angle like bullets, vainly trying to protect themselves with their puny umbrellas, and simultaneously struggling to keep their balance on the wildly bouncing and rolling inch and a half of gumdrops and lemon drops covering the ground… I think you’d probably be laughing then, too.

    I guess what i’m trying to say is: If it ever rains anything other than raindrops (and i suppose the occasional bought of industrially produced acid rain, which, mind you, is funny in its own way as well) make sure to stay indoors by a large window with a box of popcorn and enjoy the show. And if that’s not good enough for you, you might want to consider making prank calls to the neighbor across the street, the one who is directly across from your chosen vantage point, saying that their car is rolling down the driveway adn as far as you can tell there doesnt seem to be anyone in the driver’s seat. I can guarantee you that both their antics as they dash outside through unusual downpour and the expression on their face as they realize they went out for nothing will be be priceless.

    Now all we have to do is wait for it to rain…

    If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gumdrops, the laws o fphysics would be different and it wouldn’t matter.
