Of course, the only time that it storms enough to close the pool early is on days that I don't have to work. But, I'll be honest... Rainy summer days are some of my favorites.

I worked 'til 3 o'clock this afternoon and on the way home, I could tell I was driving into some nasty weather. It didn't start raining until I made it here, but now the rain is falling steadily and the thunder continues to rumble across the sky.

It makes the rest of the day perfect for a "TPWT Day."

Never heard of a TPWT Day? TPWT stands for "Trailer Park White Trash Day." Now, I'm not trying to offend anybody... I know some great people who live in trailer parks. But, when I'm talking about a TPWT Day, I'm talking about one of those days when you just sit around on your ass, watch crappy television, and do nothing productive.

As a matter of fact, I think I'm going to start now. This isn't as great as a TPWT Day that starts in the morning and you've got the whole day to nap and be lazy, but it will be close enough for me.

I'm going to go and change into some pajama pants and a t-shirt, watch a movie, and probably order some Chinese food for dinner. I'll feel guilty about it later, but that's the greatest part about it - that kind of smug, guilty feeling of enjoying something you know you probably shouldn't be doing.

The laundry is just going to have to wait.

Sometimes you just have to have a TPWT Day. We usually have ours on a Saturday. The rainier the better.

I'm the inverse of you guys. I live most of my life where every day is a TPWT day, and occasionally I sneak in a CCMJ* day.

Ah, man. I like your style! I strive to do what you're doing every day of my life.

Blogarita: Rain really is what makes it great.

Dave: We know you really do live that life on a daily basis. And that you live in a run-down double-wide.

LBB: It's the only way to be.
