all wet

I usually follow instructions. 
When I drove past this sign yesterday — corner of Warner and Gould — I stopped, parked, got out, and did exactly what was suggested.  
Must say: It was pretty nice. 
It didn't matter that the sky was gray.  
Or that the weirdly reflective STOP sign overhead was all bent out-of-shape. 
Or that I didn't last the whole minute (probably more like 15 seconds).  
When I got back in the car, I felt revived.  
If I followed those instructions today, of course, I'd get a faceful.  
Of rain, that is.  
Which I suppose might be enlivening in it own way ...
