War Between Sun & Rain


Setting: Philippines…

Rain: Hey, Sun! It’s now my time to shine! It’s already June and your heat is more needed on the other side of the planet. Summer’s over here in the Philippines!

Sun: Oh shut up, Filipinos love me. They love summer so they love me.

Rain: Vacation’s over! Students no longer go to beaches. They rejoice whenever I pour because I can make classes suspended.

Sun: Yeah, then they regret it because of too much flood you bring. They love me better than you.

Rain: How can you be so sure? I hear them complain all the time! They always say they “suffocate” because of you and their electric bills got so high because they had to turn on their electric fans and air-conditioners all the time last summer!

Sun: Are you really challenging me? Don’t you hear how they grumble about you? You always pour when they are not ready.

Rain: Well, I can’t help myself to pour when I see them very uncomfortable with the heat but I couldn’t give them more because it was still summer. Now, I can see that they are ready for me. It’s time for you to go away.

Sun: Well, let’s just see who they love more!


Wax: Why is the weather like this?!?!?!

    Nicely articulated dialogue! Rains arrived in India this week, but nowadays students won’t get to enjoy due to academic pressures and engagement in extracurricular activities… Fortunately, the school where my daughter studies has a Rainy day (or Umbrella day as it’s called) in academic calendar when students can enjoy the drizzles & play in school premises while it rains!

      Wow! That sounds nice. 🙂 I just want to stay at home when it rains. hehehe. Weather is just so annoying sometimes. Most of the time, it’s so hot then it will suddenly rain. We might get sick because of the extreme weather changes.

    Great post! I feel like I’m eavesdropping on a conversation between the rain and the sun.

    The rain is a party crasher sometimes. It’s rained quite a bit recently here, since it’s been humid which I can’t complain about.
