That's not a metaphor for anything. Or at least not a deliberate one.
It's pretty much been happening all day.
Which means the most exciting thing to see out the window was when a guy pulled up at my neighbor's case, got out with a small metal cage and disappeared (with the neighbor) for about 45 minutes.
When he came back, the cage had two live chickens. Where did these chickens come from? I have no idea. Where was he taking them? No idea.
But at least it was more interesting than watching it rain.
Fortunately, YOU have something more interesting going on - there are new topics: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1138490.html and partnerships being formed via the Intersection! https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1138930.html (Which, I've got to say, that has been a lot of fun to see how those have developed. There are a lot of those match ups that I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens, just from the personalities involved - and I'm sure that all of them are going to be great.)
