It was pouring when I went to pick Willa up at school today. I got a great parking spot, and locked Henry in the car. Under a giant yellow golf umbrella, I walked 50 yards and waited for Willa's class to come out of the school, lined up behind a teacher. There was another mom waiting. She stood under a tree without an umbrella or a rain jacket. "Hi," I said, "you're already soaked, but let's stand next to each other." We shared the umbrella.

She didn't say a word. For the whole 3 mintues that we waited.

I was so uncomfortable, and it's obviously stuck with me for the day.
