The rain started just after lunch on Thursday. The kiddos got into class, and the period went normally. Then the bell rang signaling the end of the period.
As the students filed out, various screams erupted around the middle school.
Student: "What is this, elementary school? It's just a little rain. You've seen it before. It's not like you're going to melt."
She pretty much nailed it. Saved me the trouble of saying it.
(Contrary to popular legend, it does occasionally rain in southern California. While it's been a while--undoubtedly you've heard about our drought--it hasn't been so long that middle schoolers would have not experienced it. And not even that long ago.)
