So there was Bossy, last night, bowl of popcorn on her lap and glass of wine teetering on the windowsill, all set to watch her Philadelphia Phillies smoke the last of the Tampa Bay Rays to win the World Series.
Meanwhile o’er the land fell a rain; a light rain.
It wasn’t a terribly disturbing rain, despite the 38-degree temperature and wind on the field.
In fact it was just enough rain to douse the sweet black hair collecting around the nape of a certain player’s neck.
But suddenly everyone was dropping baseballs and squinting into gusts of rain and hydroplaning into bases while the fans blew out of their stadium seats.
And the next thing you know the officials had suspended the game, which was tied 2-2 in the sixth inning—the game to be continued when the weather lets up, and it’s not letting up any time soon. Never before in the history of the World Series has anything like this ever happened, except for, like, a century ago, but Bossy can barely remember what she did yesterday, let alone one-hundred years ago.
