As I was driving to Chicago to see becca this weekend, the rain shifted from pelting to sheets and the semi beside only compounded the merciless situation. I began to sing "superfluous roadtrip" as my mom, sitting in the passenger seat, closed her eyes and pretended we were some place slower than the 80/90 Toll Road.
Neither of us was prepared for the weather. She was wearing a tweed jacket and I my velvet frock coat, both of which provide the opposite service to repelling water. By the end of the day, with my damp hair matted to my forehead and neck, I began to dream of some light options for staying impervious to the rain.
