Glad that I had a good book with me, I leaned my seat back, pulled out a flashlight and started to read. Eventually, the rain and warm air in the car lulled me to sleep. I woke some time later to someone rapping on the car window. I sat up, rubbing my face. The rain had stopped, replaced by that muggy, post rain ick that makes your skin feel like it’s covered in regurgitated slime. Feeling about as fresh as three day old road kill, I opened my window a crack.
