I can't make our meeting [at 9 am] because the rain is getting worse. It soaked through my bag and my laptop and my papers are all wet. If it lightens up in the next few minutes I will try to make it.
Frosty the Snowman
Thought but unsaid, 9:01 a.m.
Contrary to your perceptions that I have magical powers, I cannot enter the building by space-time travel. Unlike you, who might find a new contraption called an "umbrella" or an amazing garment called a "raincoat" handy, I can't drive a scooter, hold an umbrella, and keep my belongings dry, so they, too are wet. In addition, my clothes got soaked while unloading my scooter, my scooter got soaked while I loaded the lift, and I am now sitting in a puddle, despite the towel I brought. I also risked shorting out the scooter's electrical system in the rain. For you. But yes, certainly, stay warm and dry there in Oz.
