"I'd walk in the rain between the raindrops"

Today, I did. It was interesting. I heard the rain before I saw it or felt it. Big, nickel-sized droplets started to fall everywhere, leaving spots on the pavement the size of pancakes.

I probably would have registered it already but Captain Hector annoys the fuck out of me. He can warp into a zone outside Known Space and tell me to register, but when I hail him for help because I've been stranded by marauding pirates, he can't/won't respond. Gee, if you really wanted me to register, you'd give me free repairs at least. I'm not asking for a fleet of Kestrels/Manticores!

I really like /ing things lately. And I really like the etymology for 'maraud'. But I will go now before the power goes out.
