Rain, or Trying not to swear in front of the kids

We’ve been getting a lot of it. Torrents interspersed with drizzles, then little bits of blazing sun that lase the moisture from the sidewalks into steam that seeps up into the air.
I don’t mind it, it’s good for the plants, except the humidity is – insert whatever cliche you’ve read about high humidity here – and the kids are stir-crazy, and the flies, and the microflora.
For example, the bread I bought Friday has mold on it. For example, the cat food spilled on the basement floor this morning has mold on it. It’s kind of cool looking so I almost took a picture, but it’s also gross and besides then I’d feel obligated to clean it up.
However, there have been setbacks in the ongoing battle with my involuntary locutions.
Today, getting the kids, the dry cleaning in its clingy bag, the keys, my bag, etc back into the car, my wallet dropped into the filthy creek rushing through the gutter.
Winner: me. "OH! Dag! Nabbit! Rats! MRRUH!"
Yesterday, getting the kids, the swim bag, the hand-me-downs, the shoes back into the car after a visit to the cousins, we realized we’d left the windows down for 6 hours – with a 45 minute drive ahead of us.
Winner: the rain. "Ohhhh, S#IT."
Those who think one man can change the world, have the luxury of trying.

A woman and her kids walk along the slums of Morro da Babilônia. The dog didn’t seem to belong to them but followed them – maybe hoping for a food handout.
I was trying to get a picture of the naked kids hairdo…

Without anyone thinking I was a perv. But seriously, this kid had the oddest haircut I’ve ever seen. Super weird sideburn style. They also don’t like to put male boys in clothes there – they’re very proud of showing off what they’ve got.
Question by Michael Vick is Racist to Dogs: What do call those kids in high school that dress all black, listen to heavy metal, and worship satan?
And no it’s NOT called EMO, it’s something else. And do you have to be white in order to become one of them, I don’t care but just wondering. And what is wrong with these kids, do they have some psychological problem or something?
